Nominations are requested for the 2015 Farquharson Award.  This 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 Edinburgh College, nor do they have to be medically qualified.

The closing date for the 2015 Farquharson Award is Friday 5 June 2015.

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