The AAA welcomes medical trainees and is keen to promote the mission of the AAA to them.
The Margaret Dodson prize was instigated for the best free paper by a trainee or allied health professional submitted to the annual scientific meeting. Margaret Dodson was a consultant anaesthetist in Liverpool and founder member of the AAA.
The prize has been funding for an individual to travel to a foreign scientific meeting with a programme relevant to the interests of AAA.
It is now a cash prize.
Best Oral Presentation: £250
Runner up: £150
Best Poster: £100
The prize is awarded at the discretion of the AAA Council.
