The Trainees' Prize & Jackson Rees Medal

The format will be similar to last year with a closing date for all entries of Wednesday 17th January 2018 which should be submitted to the Secretary. The complete abstract (including title, authors' names and addresses, text, table, space for figure, references and acknowledgements) should not exceed one A4 page. This format will allow 450-500 words, or 250-350 words plus a table or figure. Shortlisting of papers will pay particular attention to the originality of the idea and its clinical relevance, the amount of work that the presenting trainee had put into the paper, the clarity, quality and conclusions of the abstract. Authors of the best 4 abstracts will then be asked to give a 10 minute presentation with 5 minutes for questions at the meeting. Judging on the night will be done by the whole audience who will take into account not only the above criteria but also the quality of the presentation, slides, timekeeping and the response to questions.
