The WGJ Hampson Memorial Prize

Entries are invited for the above prize which will be awarded for the best piece of research in orthopaedic surgery or related subjects (including work by researchers from other disciplines) carried out in the South West region or South Wales.

The judges will make their decision on the basis of submitted reprints of work published in the previous calendar year or of summaries of work completed but not yet published and will take into consideration the sort of work which, in their opinion, would have appealed to Gary Hampson.

Please note that extensive work (such as a degree thesis) must be condensed into a more concise summary format for consideration by the judges.

To enter:

Submissions should be made in hardcopy triplicate, accompanied by a completed application form (see download below) and a brief curriculum vitae to the SWOC Hon Secretary before the date of the SWOC Spring meeting (15th May 2015). The prize winner will receive a cheque for £500 and will be invited to present their work to the autumn SWOC meeting.
