Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowship winners
The Mobbs Corporate Health Fellowships provide an opportunity for individuals 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, but which they would otherwise not be able to attend.
The Fellowships are kindly supported by Corporate Health Ltd in memory of Sir Nigel Mobbs.
This year four Fellowships were awarded, two of which were for members to present a paper at the 31st International Congress on Occupational Health (ICOH) in Seoul, South Korea this summer.
- Jaques Tamin (FFOM) will present a paper entitled ‘Occupational Health Communications: confidentiality, consent and confusion’
- Minha Rajput-Ray (DOccMed DDAM) will present her research findings on Health Care Workers Hydration at Work, which she describes as her first Occupational Medicine related research
- Abeyna Jones, a specialty registrar specialist, was awarded a Fellowship to complete a study tour to Los Angeles, U.S.A. Her visit will focus on innovation and leadership in healthcare in the corporate sector. In addition, she will learn about the delivery of occupational medicine training at UCLA Irvine
- Clare Fernandes, a trainee GP, was awarded a Fellowship to complete the Diploma in Occupational Medicine Course at the Royal Society of Public Health. This allowed her to gain a formal qualification in a field she has already had some shadowing experience in, and which she wishes to pursue further
Reports from all the recipients will be published on the Faculty website throughout the year. The deadline for the next round of applications is 1 December 2015. You can find out more in the prizes section of the website.
