Congratulations to Emma Cowie for receiving the 'Lois Barr'
Memorial Award for 2015/16.
This prize is awarded annually to the student who achieves
highest marks in the BCC examinations across all the UK courses.
"I attended the 2017 AOP conference after being told I had won the Lois Barr
Memorial Prize. Part of the prize was a free place on the conference to receive
the award. Although the thought of being up on stage was more than a little
nerve wracking, I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience! As a result of
the discussion on TCCs at the conference, I have made an objective within my
department to audit the outcomes of our TCC patients. The conference was also a
good opportunity to spend time with other orthopaedic practitioners from around
the country. I will definitely come again at the next opportunity."
Congratulations to Beth Tite on receiving the David Rowley Award.
Beth is well known for her work on the BCC course at
Stanmore. She works tirelessly to give all students the best opportunity
