The Linacre lecture is named after the Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) first president, Thomas Linacre (1460–1524). Applicants must be members or fellows of the RCP who will be under the age of 40 on the closing date for applications, 1 November 2021, as per the terms of the original bequest.
Ideally, the lecture should include a proportion of original unpublished work in a balanced account of the subject suitable for a general medical audience. If work has been carried out in collaboration or under supervision, approval by those colleagues must be obtained before an application is submitted. The winner will be awarded £200 honorarium.
Only personal applications (not nominations) will be accepted.
