The Harvey Goldman Teaching Award was established in 2011 as a tribute to honor a dedicated, longstanding educator and mentor, Dr. Harvey Goldman. This award recognizes Dr. Goldman’s seminal contributions to the USCAP’s postgraduate educational and mentoring activities. The first awardees, Drs. Donald Antonioli and Henry Appleman were acknowledged in 2011 at the 100th Annual Centennial Meeting of USCAP in San Antonio, Texas.

The Academy shall administer the endowment, manage the investment of the funds, implement appropriate fund-raising activities and communicate with members of the Award Committee. The associated administrative costs for maintaining the endowment and selecting the award recipients will be the responsibility of the Academy.

This is an annual award presented at the awards program of the USCAP Annual Meeting.
