This is an annual event where Advanced and Basic Surgical Trainees across all disciplines can showcase their research projects. The D.S Rosengarten Surgical Trainee Research Prize is named in honour of Mr David “Sam” Rosengarten. David learned his surgery at the Alfred Hospital before undertaking research and post-Fellowship training in Vascular Surgery at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith. He returned to the Alfred and held appointments in the Department of Surgery and the Vascular Unit. David was appointed Head of the Vascular Surgery Unit at the Alfred in 1987, the position he held until his sudden death in 1994. David was recognised for his encouragement of research, for an enduring interest in surgical audit and his involvement in registrar training. This prize is his enduring memorial.
Previous recipients of the Prize include Edwina Moore (2008+2009), Marco Larobina (2003 + 2005), Mr Peter Evans (1993), Professor Wendy Brown (1998+1999) and our former Chairman - Mr Stewart Skinner (1989).
