RCoA Maurice P Hudson Prize

Dr Maurice Hudson was a consultant anaesthetist in London, took the DA in 1936, was awarded the FFARCS in 1948 and had a particular interest in dental anaesthesia. The Hudson Harness was one of his innovations.

The late Dr Maurice Hudson's daughter generously donated money to the College in memory of her father for an annual prize for the best paper on his favourite subject; resuscitation.

The criteria has now been extended and the prize will be awarded to the anaesthetic or intensive care trainee who is the principal author of the best paper relating to the management of acutely ill patients published, or accepted for publication, in a peer reviewed journal. A prize of £500 is available this year.

Please note that only one article may be submitted per applicant.
