The School was delighted to welcome prize-winning students and their guests to a prize giving ceremony this November to celebrate their achievements in areas across the MBChB last academic year.

School Prizes are awarded annually in a wide range of categories including an excellent performance in a knowledge or clinical assessment, a fantastic piece of work in a portfolio, report or presentation, and for producing an excellent learning resource on one of the course’s key themes. While the Spirit of Liverpool School of Medicine Prize recognises a student that has gone above and beyond expectations and is a true advocate for the School.

In her welcome address, Dean of the School of Medicine Professor Hazel Scott commended students on their accomplishments, hailing them as an inspiration to us all, and inviting prize winners to show a token of appreciation to their guests for all of their support along the way, with a rousing round of applause. She noted,

I am immensely proud of the resilience, creativity and strength of spirit our student doctors have shown, particularly over these last couple of years. The challenges facing our national health service continue to be felt but through their tenacity and commitment, our students demonstrate the qualities that will serve them, and their patients, so well in the future, as they are indeed the bright future the NHS looks towards.

The prize giving ceremony was presided over by Vice Dean for Risk and Student Experience Dr Iain Young and Director of Assessment and Feedback Bee Collier and the evening was made even more special by musical performances from members of the School’s performing arts society, Artefacts.
