Ferguson Anderson Prize in Geriatric Medicine

Applications are now invited for the Ferguson Anderson Prize in Geriatric Medicine. We offer three essay prizes (£300, £200, and £100) to individual medical students studying at Scottish Universities. Many students are now involved in special study modules or elective projects relating to the elderly. These may provide the basis for a submission. The essay can cover any topic relating to ageing or care of older people and must not exceed 2500 words, excluding references.

Annual closing date for entries: 31st December
