Alvan R. Feinstein Memorial Award
In honor of: The late Dr. Alvan R. Feinstein, internationally recognized as the father of clinical epidemiology
The award is to be given to an American physician who has made a major contribution to the science of patient care in activities that Dr. Feinstein has broadly defined as clinical epidemiology or clinimetrics, involving the direct study of patients’ clinical conditions. This award is given every other year.

Nominating and supporting letters should address:

- In what way did the nominee’s work contribute to the science of patient care?
