First launched in 2010, the Michael Pittilo Essay Prize recognises and celebrates the integration of conventional and complementary approaches to healthcare.

Entries are open to UK students studying any healthcare discipline at degree level or above, including CAM therapies that are statutory regulated or on an Accredited Register, approved by the Professional Standards Authority.

The College of Medicine’s summer conference will this year explore ways in which sustainability is redefining our health system and to correspond with this theme the essay question for the Michael Pittilo Prize is:

‘How can patients, communities, healthcare professionals and governing bodies work together to ensure sustainability of the healthcare system?’

Essays (1,500 words) need to be submitted by 9 July 2017 to lauren.quinn@collegeofmedicine.org.uk

The FHT is delighted to have been a member of the judging panel for eight consecutive years and looks forward to publishing the winning essay in International Therapist.
