The IMH has awarded the 2017 Duncan MacMillan Essay Prize for psychiatry trainees in the UK. The competition sought essay entries on ‘the next big thing in psychiatry research’.

The winner was Dr Zehra Zaidi, core trainee year one (working in Bridgend, Wales) and the second prize went to Dr Jon Gibson, core trainee year two (Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust). Professor Martin Orrell, IMH director, presented the prizes at the Royal College of Psychiatrists (Trent Division) Annual Conference in November 2017.
