Annual Awards to Outstanding Psychiatric Residents at Leading Medical Schools

 

For more than thirty years, the Laughlin Foundation has honored outstanding residents in psychiatric training programs.  Award recipients are selected by the senior faculty at their university.  During the 2005-2006 academic year, the dollar amount of the award was $1,000, and it was accompanied by a certificate that was given to the recipient at their graduation ceremony.  Often the cash award is divided between two or more recipients. The following institutions actively participate in this Program:

 

     Albert Einstein School of Medicine

     Baylor University School of Medicine

     The University of California School of Medicine in San Francisco

     The University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

     The University of Colorado School of Medicine

     Columbia University School of Medicine

     Harvard University School of Medicine

     The Medical University of South Carolina

Support for the Frederick, Maryland Business Roundtable

Each month, the Foundation hosts an interactive Business Roundtable discussion from 4:00 to 5:30 PM in the Trust Conference Room of the C. Burr Artz Public Library at 110 East Patrick Street in Frederick.  The session is free and open to the public; however, in order to keep the discussion interactive, space is limited to 17 participants, and therefore reservations are required.  The Business Roundtables are “interactive exchanges” among senior business executives, based upon the principle that adult business learning is often accomplished best through the exchange of information among well-informed peers.
