Ob-gyn dept. wins award

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has received one of four Roy M. Pitkin Awards, recognizing academic departments that promote and demonstrate excellence in research.

Recipients are chosen based on articles submitted to Obstetrics and Gynecology. Pitt was selected based on an article written by researchers in obstetrics and gynecology: "Vasopressin During Abdominal Hysterectomy: A Randomized Controlled Trial," by Cynthia R. Okin, Richard S. Guido, Leslie A. Meyn and Sivan Ramanathan.

The award was presented May 5 as part of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) annual clinical meeting in Los Angeles.

The Roy M. Pitkin Award was established in 1999 and consists of a $5,000 grant to support research in obstetrics and gynecology. The award was founded by the editorial board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is jointly sponsored by ACOG and Elsevier Science, Inc.
