ACT Medical Board Professionalism & Leadership Prize Year Two

Offered by ANU College of Health & Medicine


The ACT Medical Board supports the Personal and Professional Development Prize for Year 2 in order to promote knowledge of and interest in ethical and professional behaviour amongst doctors and students.

The genesis of this prize was a desire of the Medical Board to acknowledge the importance of medical ethics and personal development as part of a sound, well-rounded education of medical students. The Board sees this as a welcome opportunity to assist in the development of the promotion of moral, ethical and patient-centred behaviour amongst medical practitioners.

The Prize is for award each year to the student who in that year was enrolled in Year 2 of the Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery Program; and who submitted as a component of the assessment for the Personal and Professional Development an article at the end of Year 2 and whose performance on the article was assessed by the Selection Committee as outstanding and reflecting comprehensive knowledge and application of Personal and Professional Development issues at the Year 2 level.

Details of prizes including eligibility and Conditions of Award are subject to change without notice.
