The Intensive Care Society wishes to promote and encourage the presentation of the best critical care science in the UK. With this in mind the ICS Research Gold Medal is awarded annually to a young investigator (nurse, AHP or doctor) who has shown excellence in science relevant to intensive care.
The researcher is usually someone who has completed a substantial body of work (e.g MD/PhD) and should not be in a Consultant / Senior Lecturer post or equivalent (although where the body of work was completed prior to recent appointment they will be considered).
The award process allows a number of finalists to achieve recognition through formal presentation at the ICS State of the Art meeting in front of their peers.
The award is open to members and non-members.
A maximum of 5 abstracts will be shortlisted for the Gold medal oral presentation
