Bursaries and Awards

2019-20 Bursaries and Awards

GEM Prize

This year’s GEM Prize was awarded to Sarah Bufton: congratulations!

Case and Poster Presentations

The 2019-20 Poster Prize was won by Dr Nikita Minhas and Dr Elizabeth Sykes for their fascinating poster on pregnancy testing in surgical patients.

The Case Presentation Prize was awarded to Dr Michelle Sui, who presented an unusual case of “off legs” – and how the radiologist can help.

Medical Elective Bursaries

The Derby Medical Society is proud to support the career development of medical students through awarding elective bursaries. Three bursaries of £250 are awarded to the successful applicants, who are invited back to give a presentation on their elective experiences at the start of the next lecture series.

Applications from students undertaking their elective in 2020 were of an exceptionally high standard this year, with over 60 applications.

The winners are:

  • Sarah Owen who will be travelling to Samoa to work in Emergency Medicine and Primary Care.
  • Shahid Ali, who plans to go to Queens, New York City to work in Primary Care.
  • Emily Armon-Drewett will be going to the Phillipines to work in Offender Healthcare and plans to work on a QIP looking at safeguarding.

Derby Medical Society looks forward to welcoming the winners next year to hear all about their experiences on elective.

Congratulations to all the winners and many thanks to everyone who sent in applications. We wish you all the best with your electives – wherever they may be!
