There are three competitions open to clinical academics at the Spring Meeting: the poster competition, which is open to everyone; the oral plenary competition, which is open to pre-doctoral and doctoral researchers; the Young Investigator competition, which is open to postdoctoral researchers (Clinical Lecturers, Clinician Scientist Fellows and equivalent posts). 

The competitions are open to clinical academic trainees – those who combine clinical training with research (ACFs, PhD students, Clinical Lecturers, Clinician Scientist Fellows or equivalent posts). You must have completed or be in the process of completing a clinical degree (medical, dental, veterinary, nursing or other allied health professional qualification). You must be undertaking or have completed a period of genuine research.

Please note that the abstract submission round for the 2017 Spring Meeting will close on 9 September 2016, 17:00 (GMT). 

All competitors should read the guidelines before submitting their abstracts.

All abstracts accepted for the oral and poster competitions will be published in a special edition of The Lancet. You will be able to cite your abstract and add it to your publications list.  

  • A competition open to those at all stages of research/clinical training.
  • To apply, you need to submit a poster abstract. The best abstracts will be invited to present a poster at the meeting.
  • On the day, selection panel judges will assess each poster.
  • The winner will receive The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Prize of £2,500 and four runners up will receive £500 each.
