The Restore Essay Prize is run annually and is open to all current UK medical
students. Many see this as a great way to explore and nurture their interest in the
field of Burns, Plastic, and Reconstructive Surgery. Once again this year, we received
an exceptional standard of entries from medical schools across the country. After
careful assessment by external reviewers, there was an outright winner and a runner up.
It is with great delight to announce the winner of the Restore Essay Prize 2018-19 is Amanda Min Hui Choo from the University of Cambridge Medical School. She has been awarded £1000 to contribute towards an elective or research project in burns or plastic surgery as well as a one-off meeting with our Director of Research, Fadi Issa, to help bring the Essay to publication.
A highly commended essay by Teniola Adeboye has been awarded our runner up prize of £100.
Congratulations to our winners!
Thank you to all entrants for their dedication and hard work. We hope that you continue to further your interest in this fantastic specialty and we wish you all the luck for the future.
