Tony Jackson Memorial Prize

The Tony Jackson Memorial Prize encourages UK medical students and new graduates to take up a career in paediatrics. Applications for 2015 are now open, and close at 12 noon, 17 December 2014.

Overview

The Tony Jackson Memorial Prize is open to undergraduate medical students in the UK and Ireland, and doctors in their first post. It is intended to encourage medical students and new graduates to take up a career in paediatrics.

The funds for the prize come from Dr Tony Jackson, former Consultant Paediatrician at the Royal London Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Hospital for Children, who gives £500 to the College.

We will award the prize at the RCPCH Annual Conference in April 2015.
