James Tudor Prize
The AFMS is grateful to the ongoing support of the James Tudor Foundation for supporting the attendance of medical students at our annual meetings.
Owing to the generosity of the foundation, we are able to support student attendance through travel grants and accommodation at our meetings in the UK and France. We are also able to offer the James Tudor Prize for the best student presentation at our conference.
This is an international prize open to medical students at a UK, Irish or French university who attend conference.
If you would be interesting in competing for the James Tudor Prize at our conference in Inverness (October 2023), please contact us to enquire and submit an abstract.
