Each year the Francis M. Forster Award is presented during the Wisconsin Neurological Society Annual Meeting. Residents and fellows submit their abstracts to their Residency Program Director and a maximum of two abstracts are then selected from each institution (MCW and UW) for presentation at the meeting. The content of the presentations can be either in house research under faculty guidance or interesting cases. 


The winner is then selected by vote of conference attendees (residents and fellows cannot vote).
