Applications Open – Sulway Harris Prize for Excellence in Clinical Communication

After the success of its inaugural year in 2016, we are excited to announce applications are open for The Sulway Harris Prize for Excellence in Clinical Communication, celebrating and promoting a skill essential to patient care – communication.

The Prize was established by endocrinologist Dr Martyn Sulway who successfully sourced a considerable donation pool of over $70,000 from his own network to bring this to fruition.

The Prize aims to promote and encourage the development of professional communication skills – whose importance is increasingly recognised as essential to optimal patient care, as well as professional wellbeing.

The coordination of the prize is administered by The Pam McLean Centre (PMC), a joint venture between the Northern Clinical School and the Northern Sydney Local Health District. Assessment of the Prize will be undertaken by PMC staff including Prof Stewart Dunn, Dr Renee Lim and PMC affiliates.

Three awards will be made to students in the final Year of the University of Sydney, Sydney Medical Program valued at $1,500, $1,000 and $500. Competition for the Prize is voluntary.

Allocation of Prize in 2017
Only Students in Year 4 may apply. Year 4 students can apply by voluntary submission of a workbook, a written statement, and recorded role-play interaction. The finalists will partake in a competition workshop.

If you wish to apply for the prize or receive further information please email Dr Renee Lim.
