Thanks to the generosity of our benefactors,
the Faculty is able to award the following prestigious prizes
MACCABAEAN PRIZE AND MEDAL
For the best dissertation submitted for the Diploma in the History of Medicine examination.
The Maccabaean Society was founded in 1891 as ‘an association of Jewish professional gentlemen in a species of club’. It now has 500 members, both women and men, most of whom are distinguished professionals.
The prize is in memory of Professor Sydney Selwyn (1934-1996), a medical microbiologist and bacteriologist, bone marrow transplant pioneer, and world-class expert in the history and development of medicine. The prize is awarded to the best candidate in the Diploma in the Philosophy of Medicine examination.
The Selwyn Prize 2016 has been awarded to Daniel Di Franceso and will be presented at the John Locke Lecture 2017.
