Outstanding Resident Award

Award Recipients

  • 2019 Laura Mihalko, MD

The Society of Women in Urology established the Outstanding Resident Award to honor residents who fulfill the mission of SWIU — to advance the career development and professional success of women urologists — and who have been a mentor and/or supporter for other residents and students.

The award will be presented at the SWIU Annual Clinical Mentoring Conference. Award recipients will be presented with an award certificate and receive a Resident Travel Award (worth $750) to attend the meeting.


Appropriate candidates for this award are women residents who are PGY3 and above and have demonstrated a significant impact on their colleagues and medical students in their clinical, academic, and professional development. Candidates can self nominate or be nominated by others.


The SWIU Resident Awards Committee will review the applications and will select the person who best exemplifies the mentoring and support traits that the award intends to encourage. The Board of Directors will approve the final candidate and will contact recipients of the award by October 21, 2019.


Application Deadline: Friday, September 20, 2019
Late applications will not be reviewed.
