The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness

N&Y Spring 2018 Competition

                                                     Northern and Yorkshire Division

Trainee/Foundation Doctor/Medical Student Competition 2018


Friday 23 March 2018


York Race Course, York YO23 1EX




Trainee Psychiatrists, Foundation Doctors and Medical Students based in Northern and Yorkshire Division are invited to submit their research and audit work for consideration of presentation at the Division Spring Conference which takes place in York on Friday 23 March 2018.


This is a competitive process and the prestige of having your work selected is increasingly being recognised. Your research or audit can be on any topic; it does not need to match the theme of the Conference. There will be two categories: Medical Student/FY1 and Trainee Psychiatrist/FY2.  We will select the best applications from Medical Students and FY1 Doctors for presentation in poster format and the best applications from Trainees and FY2 Doctors will be chosen for presentation in either oral or poster format.  Oral presentations will take place during a specific session in the morning and those chosen to present in poster format will have the opportunity to exhibit their posters throughout the day and discuss their work with other delegates during the refreshment and lunch breaks.


A £200 prize will be awarded for the best oral and poster presentation in each category. All competitors will be entered into a free prize draw to win a £300 bursary to attend the 2018 RCPsych International Congress.


This competition is open to all Trainee Psychiatrists,FY1 and FY2 Grades and Medical Students who were working/based in Northern and Yorkshire Division in 2017.  If you are moving out of the Division in 2018 you may still be able to compete but please check with the Division Office to confirm your eligibility.


Please contact Suzie Veitch if you have any queries. The application form and guidance can be found below.


Deadline for submission of abstracts is 12 noon on Thursday 25th January 2018.
