George Urdang Medal
Established in 1952, the George Urdang Medal is awarded for an original and scholarly publication, or a single series of interrelated publications, appearing anywhere in the world and pertaining primarily to historical or historico-social aspects of pharmacy (including the history of the material medica). Evaluation is based on the competence of the research and on the skill of interpretation and presentation.
Nomination Form: The Urdang Medal Nomination Form (.pdf) may be completed by anyone. If additional copies of a form are needed, duplicates are acceptable. The forms are intentionally brief, and limited to the essential information directly related to the purpose for which an award has been authorized. (Extended biographical information or testimonial statements are not solicited, since the AIHP does not presently have an award recognizing accumulated career contributions.)
Deadline: Completed nomination forms may be submitted an any time, but must be received before April 30 for the 2019 competition. Nominations received thereafter will be considered in the following year’s competition.
Nomination Forms Automatically Renewed: Unsuccessful candidates will also be considered in two subsequent years. Eventually an unsuccessful candidate will be either dropped from consideration or transferred to an award category where the prospect may be more promising.
Submissions: Please submit the completed nomination form and copies of the nominated publication(s) to: American Institute of the History of Pharmacy, 777 Highland Avenue, Madison, WI 53705.
