Dr Michael Blacow Memorial Prize
The Michael Blacow Memorial Fund was established when Commander and Mrs A H Blacow made a donation to the British Paediatric Association in memory of their son, Michael, a trainee paediatrician who was killed in an accident.
The College awards £200 to a paediatrician below consultant status for the best paper at the Annual Meeting.
- we cannot award a prize to the same trainee paediatrician twice
- the Academic Board selects the prize-winning paper
- authors do not need to apply
- if you are eligible, we will consider your presentation
- we will notify winners shortly after the RCPCH Annual Conference
