American Surgical Association Foundation Fellowship Research Award
The purpose of the ASAF Fellowship is to support and encourage gifted young surgeons who choose careers in investigation and academic surgery. Fellows will be supported in an initial year; the Fellowship can be renewed by review of the Fellowship Committee for a succeeding year. During the Fellowship years, the Awardee should have a primary role in research and teaching. It is expected that the Fellow will have a faculty position following the Fellowship in the Department of Surgery of the sponsoring institution.

ASA Flance-Karl Award
The Flance-Karl Award was established in 1996 by Samuel A. Wells, Jr., MD, who was then President of the Association. The primary endowment for the award was a gift from Mr. David Farrell, Chief Executive Officer of the May Corporation, and the Barnes-Jewish-Christian Health Care System, both of St. Louis, Missouri. The award recognized I. Jerome Flance, MD, and Michael M. Karl, MD, two physicians in St. Louis, who cared for Mr. Farrell and his family. The Flance-Karl Award is presented to an American Surgical Association Fellow in the United States of America or Canada who has made a seminal contribution in basic laboratory research that has application to clinical surgery of any specialty. The recipient should be active in clinical or laboratory research and preferably an Active rather than Senior Fellow of the Association. Prior recipients of the ASA’s Medallion for Scientific Achievement are not eligible for the Flance-Karl Award.
