EH Embley Award 2019
The AMA Victoria EH Embley Memorial Medal in Anaesthesia is open to MD students at all levels and is awarded for the best case report in anaesthesia, perioperative or pain medicine.
Applications open until October 6th
Have you met patients who have had challenges associated with their recovery from anaesthesia and surgery, particularly if they are older and sicker? This is the focus of Perioperative Medicine.
Perhaps you've also met patients who've had challenges with pain, both with and without surgery? This is the focus of Pain Medicine.
The Centre for Integrated Critical Care (CICC), Melbourne Medical School, in conjunction with AMA Victoria, are pleased to offer the AMA Victoria EH Embley Memorial Medal in Anaesthesia for 2019. The prize consists of $500 and a medal and is awarded to the student who submits the best case report in the areas of anaesthesia, perioperative or pain medicine.
The winner will be determined by a panel of three judges comprising the Chair of Anaesthesia, a Director of Anaesthesia and a Pain Medicine Specialist from hospitals affiliated with the Melbourne Medical School.
The prize was created in honour of EH (Henry) Embley who was appointed Honorary Anaesthetist at the (Royal) Melbourne Hospital in 1895. He taught University of Melbourne medical students until 1917. His research focused on an early challenge in anaesthesia and perioperative medicine: perioperative death with chloroform.
Applications close Sunday 6th October 2019.
