Competitions

Unfortunately due to the very real threat of coronavirus, we do not feel it prudent to hold our Northern & Yorkshire Spring Conference event. As the competitions were scheduled to be held at the Spring Conference, they will no longer take place and we will not be accepting any entries.

We hope you understand and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The next competitions for the Division will be held in Spring 2021 and entries will open in September.

The competition is open to

  • Medical students
  • FY1 and FY2 doctors
  • Trainees
  • SAS Doctors 

To be eligible to enter the competition you MUST be working or on placement within the Northern & Yorkshire Division. This includes North East England, East Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and North Yorkshire. If you are based outside of this area your abstract will not be accepted.
