Articles have to be received no later than February 28, 2023. No submissions are

An annual prize for the best scientific article prepared by a trainee has been
authorized by the SGP membership at its 2008 meeting in Lugano. The Society
thought to constrict the contest to physicians in training. The focus of the trainee’s
work should be on some aspect of pediatrics, be it in basic science, translational
science, or clinical medicine. The trainee’s work should be performed entirely or at
least partly in Switzerland. Judgment will be based on a written article describing
work done by the trainee him/herself and will consider originality, completeness,
scientific accuracy, and contribution to science. Contestants must have been in
training when the work reflected in the article was performed, and must still be in
the training period or not more than one year thereafter at the time of submission.
The applicant’s mentor must certify both these points and comment the
contribution of the trainee.
The article has to be prepared as such for official publication (see Instructions for
Authors), and should be composed in English. The prize will consist of
complementary registration fees for the SGP meeting, and 5000 CHF.
It is expected that the winner will present his/her work at the time of the SGP
meeting. Manuscripts must not have been submitted to any journal prior to January
1, 2020. It is further understood that the winning article may have co-authors, but
that the first author must be the trainee who is awarded by the SGP Prize. The
manuscript should be accompanied by a letter stating the specific contribution of
the trainee and a statement concerning previous achievements, promotional
development and curricular concept. It is further understood that all entries must be
sponsored by the trainee’s head of department certifying that the work reported is
by the trainee him/herself and that the entrant is a trainee in good standing. The

winning paper. The time allowed will be decided by the Local Program Committee.
The winning article will be printed and distributed to all participants during the
