    The Standish-Barry Prize

    This prize started in 1998, the result of a bequest made by Dr Standish-Barry to the Irish Division. This was with a view to instituting a prize for the best results by an Irish graduate in the MRCPsych Membership Exams. The first such prize was given after the Autumn 1999 diet of the MRCPsych Exams, and is managed by the Exams Department of the College.

    A £200 prize is given annually, presented at the College Annual Meeting, and there is no closing date. No need to apply, as Irish candidates taking the Paper B, and the CASC MRCPsych Exams will be considered.

    Regulations

    The prize is given to the Irish Graduate thought by the Exams Sub-Committee to have given the best overall performance in Paper B, and the CASC.
