POLIQUIN RESIDENT RESEARCH COMPETITION
This competition is available to residents training in a Canadian otolaryngology program. It recognizes, in memoriam, the name of Jacques
Poliquin, who was a prominent otolaryngologist, researcher, and educator. Dr. Poliquin fostered this competition in its formative years.
The goal of the Poliquin Resident Research Competition (PRRC) is to:
Foster high quality research and innovation as an important element of residency training. Research and innovation should be
defined in its broadest sense and will include clinical, translational, basic science, population health, health policy, and
Highlight impactful research by trainees and acknowledgement through awards.
PRRC Committee Membership
The Awards Chair will select four additional judges who are members in good standing of the Society. It will be the Chairs responsibility to consider
balancing institutional, geographic and subspecialty representation while ensuring that the academic rigor of the committee.
The committee will select the awards for the following categories:
Clinical (first and second place)
Non-clinical (first and second place)
The adjudication process will consist of two parts:
a) Abstract ranking;
b) PRRC scoring;
The adjudication process will be based on the guidelines for scoring, as described below.
All abstracts will be made anonymous to the judges prior to ranking.
From the abstract submissions, approximately 15 studies will be selected to submit manuscripts and for podium presentations.
This number may vary from year to year based on the number of high quality submissions, the amount of time allocated to the competition by the
Scientific Program Chair, and the discretion of the Awards Chair.
It is expected that the judges will remain impartial and unbiased. Judges will score submissions from one's own academic institution unless the
judge is either named supervisor or collaborator of the reseach project. This may be perceived as a conflict of interest and the respective judge
will recuse themselves of scoring the submission.
The rankings and scores from each judge will be blinded from the other judges until the time of deliberation.
A significant part of the competition is the presenter's ability to field questions. An important role of the judge is to prepare and
ask questions at the end of the podium presentations.
The entire process will remain strictly confidential.
Factors for the ranking of abstracts will take into consideration:
Quality of the abstract
Completeness of data (is the research completed/will be completed)
Contribution by the resident toward the research
Impact of research in the respective field of study
Scoring will take into consideration (Total score=100)
Impact of research in the respective field of study
Journal of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
All submitted manuscripts will become the property of JOTO. As such, these manuscripts will require peer-review.
The Society will finance the successful candidates' expenses to the meeting by providing economy return
airfare and hotel accommodations (at the single room, convention rate) for two nights.
The competition is open to all residents training in a Canadian otolaryngology program. Foreign residents doing a fellowship year in a
Canadian program and Canadian residents doing a fellowship outside of Canada are eligible. A paper may be submitted any time during the
candidate's training and no later than the first competition year following completion of the training period.
Two prizes are awarded, one for clinical and non-clinical work. Each winner will receive
a cash prize of $1,000.00. The winner's names and project titles will become part of an ongoing Society listing. The second prize winners
will be awarded plaques.
Guidelines for Submissions
An abstract must be submitted to the Awards Committee Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org by
the last Friday of October each year. The abstract form and complete instructions are available on this website
(see "Annual Meeting" section to download). A resident may not submit more than one paper per year. The final paper MUST be submitted to the Awards
Committee Chair no later than April 1. Failure to comply with this deadline will constitute a late withdrawal from the competition and be
subject to sanction. All submissions and communications will be conducted electronically using the resident's email address on the application
form. Faxes and/or hard copies will not be accepted. Successful candidates are required to present their work at the annual meeting's
Poliquin Resident Research Competition.
Withdrawal from Competition
The Society receives many more submissions than are ultimately selected for presentation at the Poliquin Resident Research Competition. Late
withdrawal of a submission precludes others the opportunity for presentation. Please note that the withdrawal of your submission from the Poliquin
Competition AFTER DECEMBER 10 will result in A SANCTION from the competition in the following year for BOTH the resident and supervisor.
