Faculty Prizes – could you be a winner?

The Faculty offers two annual awards and all members are encouraged to consider whether they might be eligible. Details are available at:

The Wilf Howe Memorial Prize, which is an engraved memento together with £500, is awarded in recognition of an outstanding innovation, initiative or intervention which has delivered a demonstrable health benefit for a defined working population.

The Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowship offers an opportunity for doctors to travel to a centre of excellence to study a particular aspect of occupational medicine or to travel to a scientific meeting for which they have had a paper or poster accepted. The Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowships have now been extended to medical students and junior doctors, to fund occupational health electives.

These electives, as well as the Exxon Mobil Medical Student Electives, which are advertised through medical schools, have proved very popular with students and give a great opportunity for young doctors to gain experience in a range of occupational health settings.

The Faculty is keen to offer as many placements as possible; therefore we would like to hear from any members who could offer a two-week placement to medical students. If you are interested in offering electives to medical students or would like to discuss it with someone, please contact Emma Cox-Smith.

Deadline for applications: 28 February 2014
