Prize includes:

  • £1,000
  • Reasonable travel, accommodation and registration fee for the RCEM/EuSEM Scientific Conference 2018 in Glasgow 
  • One year membership of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine. 
Applicants are required to be a medical student at a recognised teaching institution within the UK but are not required to be a member of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine. There will be one prize awarded and the value of the prize will be £1,000. The RCEM Emergency Medicine Undergraduate Essay Prize winner 2018 will be required to present their work at the RCEM/EuSEM Scientific Conference 2018 which will take place in Glasgow. The prize will in addition fund the winner’s reasonable travel, accommodation and registration fee for the RCEM/EUSEM Scientific Conference 2018 and a one year membership of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine.

The essay should describe original Emergency Medicine research (not previously been published in a journal or presented at a major UK/international conference and with a clear applicability to EM). The essay has a word limit of 1500 words including any tables, figures, headings and references; entrants will be penalized for submissions in excess of this. Up to 2 figures/tables are allowed.

The paper must avoid any reference to any institution or anything that may reveal the author's identity. Only one applicant can be considered per submission. Applicants may (but are not required to) use traditional scientific paper headings (i.e. background, methods, results, discussion and conclusions). The winning submission will also be automatically considered for publication in the Emergency Medicine Journal.

Applicants must have played an important part in the relevant research and must have personally written the submitted work. The Award will be determined by the Research & Publications Committee of the College of Emergency Medicine, with or without the advice of external assessors.

Applications along with a completed application form which both must be written in English should be submitted in Microsoft Word format electronically to simon.howes@rcem.ac.uk by 17:00 Friday 30 March 2017.
