The ENTSHO.COM Prize: Information
The entsho.com team has set up this Prize to recognise the best contribution by a UK or RoI junior doctor to evidence-based ENT clinical practice. (This prize was formerly The Eileen Anderton Prize in 2015 and 2016.)
This is a great ST3 portfolio opportunity for those interested in a career in ENT: it is a national postgraduate prize exclusive to junior grade doctors and comes with a place on an ENT 'craft' course.
Entry is only open to those who fulfil all three entry criteria:
You must be a registered doctor (with a licence to practise if in the UK)
You must be in Foundation or Core training or equivalent, or in an SHO-grade fellow post in the UK or RoI
You must be within five years of obtaining your primary medical qualification
Full information on eligibility and regulations can be downloaded from the prize submissions page when it opens.
Submissions for the 2019 Prize will open on 15 November 2018.
The submission period will close at 1200 midday on Monday, 14 January 2019. Candidates will be informed of the outcome well in advance of ST3 National Selection.
