RCPI History of Medicine Research Award 2015
Call for applications
The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is delighted to announce the launch of the fifth annual RCPI History of Medicine Research Award. The award will be made as part of the Heritage Centre Lectures at the St Luke’s Symposium, to be held on Tuesday 13 October 2015. This is a public event, to encourage engagement with the history of medicine in Ireland.
The award prize is €500.
The RCPI History of Medicine Research Award is open to all researchers in the field of the history of medicine in Ireland, as well as related social and cultural history fields. The purpose of the award is to support and develop the study of the history of medicine in Ireland, and to promote the use of the library, archive and heritage item collections held by RCPI.
Applicants are asked to submit an abstract based on their research (maximum 800 words) with a copy of their CV, by Friday 4 September 2015. Research must be unpublished and must have been undertaken in the last 3 years. Research which has been submitted for publication will be considered, but details should be given of when and where it has been submitted, and if it has been accepted for publication.
A judging process will commence in September which will conclude with four finalists presenting their 15 minute research papers to an adjudication panel on Tuesday 13 October 2015.
