Lawrence-Brennan Inaugural Essay Competition

01 June 2017

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) and the Medico-Legal Society of Queensland (MLSQ) are co-funding an academic essay prize to attract and promote thoughtful exploration of the ethical issues that are at the interface of medicine and the law. The annual award is open to advanced trainees and recent Fellows within all medical and surgical specialties, and lawyers (Barristers and Solicitors) under five years admission. Candidates are invited to submit a 2000 word essay inspired by the quote “Consent has rough edges”, and are encouraged to discuss issues pertaining to medical consent from the perspective of their own discipline, with reference to relevant clinical issues, research or case law.
For more information on the Lawrence-Brennan Inaugural Essay Competition, or to enter, please contact Dr Josephine Sundin.
The closing date for essay submissions is 17 July 2017.




In response to the recent communique Misuse of Subspecialist Titles, the College has received valuable feedback from our members.
