The Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award acknowledges the accomplishments of early career investigator members of the CVSA Council who are focusing on fundamental and applied surgical research.

Five Thomas Award finalists will be honored and a winner will be named at the annual CVSA Council Dinner at the AHA Scientific Sessions.
