Keith Kirkland & Villis Marshall Awards

The Keith Kirkland/Villis Marshall Session at the USANZ ASM is quarantined for presentations by SET Urology Trainees. All abstracts submitted by SET Urology Trainees for presentation at the USANZ ASM are assessed by the Board of Urology to determine whether they are worthy of presentation at the Keith Kirkland/Villis Marshall Session.

The Keith Kirkland Award is for the best presentation of a study with research endpoints having a direct clinical impact/related to individual patient care and the Villis Marshall Award is for the best presentation of a study undertaken by a full time research trainee or a study in which epidemiological, economic or basic science/translational content are the primary outcomes examined The podium presentation, scientific content, and discussion constitute judging for the awards. 

To be eligible, Trainees must:

  • be a Trainee Member of the USANZ;
  • be available to present the research at the USANZ Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).

Recipients of the Keith Kirkland and Villis Marshall Awards each receive $1000 from USANZ as well as a AUF Travelling Fellowship to the value of $2500 to present their work overseas. We extend our gratitude to the AUF for its generosity with this award.
