The Gustav Killian Centenary Medal was originally designed in 1997 to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the first bronchoscopy performed by Gustav Killian, German laryngologist and noted founder of bronchology. The Killian Medal recognizes accomplished senior bronchologists whose career achievements and clinical practices have made a significant impact on the art and science of bronchology. The Killian Medal is awarded only if a nominated candidate is deemed deserving of the medal, in which case the medal is awarded at the biennial World Congress for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (WCBIP).
The WABIP-Dumon Award began as an award of the Japanese Society for Interventional Pulmonology. Since 2007, four individuals have received the award. In 2013, it was adopted by the WABIP and renamed the WABIP-Dumon award to recognize those individuals who have generously devoted their careers to enhancing others’ technical skills in rigid bronchoscopy and improving knowledge and understanding of central airway obstruction. The WABIP-Dumon award is given at the biennial World Congress for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (WCBIP).
The Heinrich Becker Young Investigator Awards for Research and Clinical Innovation
The Heinrich Becker Young Investigator Awards for Research and Clinical Innovation are designed to recognize young researchers and clinicians whose work significantly contributes to bronchology-related patient care, research, or technological innovations. Three equal awards of $1,000 each are given at the biennial World Congress for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (WCBIP). These funds are intended to help offset costs for attending the WCBIP.
