The 2018 Promising Scholars Award Program, which is jointly sponsored by Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. and the Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome Information Service (NMSIS), provides a unique opportunity for talented early career psychiatrists and neurologists to gain experience in scholarly activities and research. Residents, students and fellows are invited to submit a manuscript on the topic, “Tardive Dyskinesia”, for first and second-place awards in the amounts of $2,500 and $1,500, respectively.  Two winners will be selected to receive the awards which will be presented at the Institute for Psychiatric Services: The Mental Health Services Conference next October in Chicago.

Specific learning objectives are;

• Participants will learn the steps necessary to prepare a scientific manuscript for publication.

• Participants will review comments by expert referees and learn to incorporate and respond to the peer review process.
