Lottie Cansdale wins Peter Tizard Prize for Paediatrics
The prize is awarded each academic year. The three to four students with the combined highest scores in the paediatric components of the end of year 5/GE year 3 exam are invited to give a presentation to two examiners. The most outstanding student is then awarded the prize.
Sir Peter Tizard was a prominent British paediatrician and the first Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Oxford. He was a founding member of the Neonatal Society, established in 1959.
"It was a real honour to receive the prize. I’m really passionate about children's health and so to win a prize named after Sir Peter Tizard, who did so much for paediatrics in Oxford, is a real privilege. I’m looking forward to starting work as a foundation doctor post-graduation, after six years of study, though I have to wait a little longer to find out where that will be!"
