COMP Oral Presentation Award

Each year at the COMP Annual Scientific Meeting, an award is given for the best oral presentation. Presentations are judged on both scientific merit and communication. These competitions are open to all members and student members of COMP. A four to six member panel, with at least two members from each sub-specialty, judges the presentations.
