Foundation doctor annual prizes

Each year we give foundation doctors (FY1 and FY2) a chance to win one-day free access to RCPCH Conference - a fantastic opportunity to gain more knowledge about paediatrics and network with professionals from across the UK. You can apply via your foundation school or LETB/deanery, and the deadline for nominations is Friday 30 April.

What we offer

Boost your career in paediatrics by networking with other foundation doctors, paediatric trainees, consultants and other specialists at the RCPCH Conference 2021, which takes place online from 15 to 17 June. This includes:

  • Full coverage of one day registration fee with access to all workshops, seminars on the allocated day
  • Foundation Doctor Prize certificate signed by Dr Camilla Kingdon (RCPCH President Elect)

We hope this prize will give you an ample opportunity to network, listen to keynote lectures, attend practical sessions and get a better understanding of paediatrics. It won't just look great on your CV, but will prove your commitment to your professional development and help you expand your portfolio.
