Farquharson Award 2013

12 Mar 2013

Eric FarquharsonNominations are requested for the 2013 Farquharson Award.  The award is in memory of Eric Farquharson, Surgeon and Fellow of the College who was author of Farquharson's Textbook of Operative Surgery and previous Vice President of the College. This award is offered on a biannual basis.

In keeping with the original bequest, the Farquharson Award is offered to anyone who has made significant contributions to surgical teaching or surgical anatomy, at either undergraduate or postgraduate level.  Although this award was traditionally reserved for those who taught at the bedside, in theatre, in the dissecting room, or through lectures or textbooks, the award has broadened to incorporate new methods of teaching through simulators, wet laboratories, operative videos and distance learning programmes.

The award is open, not only to surgeons be they junior or senior, but also to those in allied professions who have contributed to surgical and anatomy teaching.  Recipients do not have to be Fellows or Members of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, nor do they need to be medically qualified.

The closing date for nominations for the 2013 Farquharson Award is Friday 31 May 2013.

A proforma for the citation can be obtained from Mrs Irene MacDonald at i.macdonald@rcsed.ac.uk
