The Australasian Chapter of Sexual Health Medicine (AChSHM) recognises the importance of training its workforce in research. AChSHM every year honours a Chapter member for their outstanding postgraduate work.


A nominee must be a registered Fellow or trainee of the AChSHM, who has been awarded a doctorate or masters by research thesis within the last 5 years.

Previous recipients of the Award are ineligible for nomination.


The successful recipient is formally presented with a certificate at the AChSHM Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM).

Selection criteria

The nominator must provide an evaluation of the contribution the nominee’s thesis has made. This can include the:

  • quality of the publications
  • contribution the work is likely to make in the future to sexual health medicine
  • translation into changes in public health or clinical practice
  • commercialisation of a product

Selection process

All nominations will be assessed by an Award Review Panel, comprised of the Chapter President and appointed Fellows.

The AChSHM will announce the recipient at the AChSHM ASM in March 2020.

The Award Review Panel and AChSHM reserves the right to not award the prize if there are no nominations of a sufficiently standard.
