Training in Anaesthesiology

Formal Project Prize Winners

The Formal Project Prize was established by the College Council. This Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the Formal Project Prize Session, usually held as part of the College Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) or any other meeting approved by the Council. Registered Trainees in the Anaesthesia, Intensive Care or Pain Medicine and Fellows within one year of award of the corresponding Diploma of Fellowship are invited to submit the abstract of their formal projects to the organizing committee of the ASM or consideration of the award. Projects that have previously been published as a full manuscript or have been presented in another local or overseas meeting will also be considered. However, projects that have previously entered in another Formal Project Prize competition will be excluded.

The Chairman of the Board of Education will appoint at least two judges to select a number of projects for presentation during the “Formal Project Prize Session” at the ASM. The criteria for selection will be based on the scientific content of the submitted abstracts. The final assessment for the award will also include the quality of performance during the presentation and discussion afterward.

The college reserves the right no to award the Prize if none of the projects achieves a sufficiently high standard.
