Dr. William D. Stevenson Research Award

The Dr. William D. Stevenson Research Award is presented to neurosurgery residents who have made a meritorious research contribution. This award is named in honour of Atlantic Canada’s pioneering neurosurgeon who was recruited to Halifax in 1948. Thanks to a generous donation from his family, the Dr. William D. Stevenson Research Fund was established in 2008, and a $1000 now accompanies the award to the successful residents. Since 2010, this prize is awarded to the resident with the best presentation at the Annual Clinical Neuroscience Resident Research Day.
