2018 Bursary Awards

The Sheffield Medico-Chirurgical Society is offering a number of awards to the value of £350 each to undergraduate students in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health in the University of Sheffield. Some of the awards will carry the Kay Dickson name whilst others will be named Med Chi Bursaries. The aim of the bursaries is to support students in undertaking a project that would further their education. The project may be completed as part of the formal undergraduate course, for example whilst on an elective attachment or during vacation periods, either in the UK or overseas, and must be undertaken in an approved establishment (e.g. university or hospital department, medical or dental school, school of nursing and/or midwifery, general practice or community setting). It is a condition of the award that successful candidates will submit a short report (1500 words) on the work undertaken within three months of completion of the project and in any event by Friday 15 December 2018). Report will be seen and adjudicated by the members of Medchi council only. It is also a condition that successful candidates must be prepared, on request, to present a short illustrated synopsis (10-15 mins) of their findings at a meeting of the Sheffield Medico-Chirurgical Society usually in March of the following year (i.e. 2019).
