Essay Title: How should we assess scarring?

This annual competition is a fantastic chance to develop your portfolio, enhance your knowledge of burns and plastic surgery and win a cash prize of £1000. The competition is open to all medical students who are registered at UK medical schools and within one year of their elective.

The winner will receive a prize of £1000, which will be expected to contribute to the cost of either an elective placement in burns or plastic surgery, or a summer research project in burns or scarring.

In addition to the financial reward, the prize winner will also receive a one-off mentoring meeting with Restore to receive feedback and guidance on how to bring their essay to publication. Please note that we cannot offer continuing support or guarantee that a publication will be successful.
