Honors & Awards

The Jay G. Hirsch Memorial Award

The Jay G. Hirsch Memorial Award was established to honor the late Jay G. Hirsch, MD who was a nationally known psychiatrist who impacted the field of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry for several decades. He was a strong advocate for suicide prevention; in 1983 he received the American Psychiatric Association Award for Excellence in Medical School Teaching and was a well respected and loved mentor, clinician, and child advocate. Thus, the Jay G. Hirsch Award was developed in his honor to continue the ground breaking work in the field of child psychiatry.

Open to medical students, general psychiatry residents, pediatric residents, child psychiatry fellows, and former fellows and residents who have graduated within the last two years. Papers will be judged on originality, relevance to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, type of paper, and quality of writing and manuscript preparation. Award promotions begin in September.
The ICCAP President approves the Selection Committee (consisting of 3-5 Board members). The committee selects the recipient and an announcement is made in February. The winner gives a 20-minute presentation at the March Board meeting and is awarded $1,000.
