Essay competition

Essay Competition

The IME holds an annual Essay Competition for Foundation Year 1 & 2 Doctors. Up to five prizes are awarded, worth £300 each. Additionally, the Robert Hillman Essay Prize of £250 will be awarded to the best overall entry.

The essay should be about an ethical issue raised by an experience you have had as a junior doctor, and should be in the form of reflective practice. Care should be taken to ensure complete patient confidentiality throughout your work.

The closing date is 6 February 2019. No applications will be accepted after that date.
