Election of lecturers
- Hunterian lecturer
- Arris & Gale lecturer - on a subject relating to Human Anatomy and Physiology
- Arnott lecturer - on a subject relating to anatomy
The Council invites applications for election to the office of Hunterian Lecturer, Arris and Gale Lecturer and Arnott Lecturer.
Since 1810 some of the most famous names in British surgery have given a Hunterian Lecture including Abernethy, Brodie, Treves, Spencer Wells, Bland Sutton, Trotter and Moynihan. The lecture should include a reasonable proportion of original, previously unpublished work. By tradition the Hunterian Lectures have a strong flavour of clinical investigation, backed up with good science and evidence. The College would like to encourage applications from more established surgeons to submit work representing a lifetime of practice, and younger surgeons with translational and directly clinically relevant research. Where the work is of a more basic science nature and laboratory based, an application for an Arris and Gale Lectureship would be more appropriate.
In order to be eligible for these awards, applicants must have either fellowship or membership of this College, or the fellowship and membership of the College's dental surgery. Up to 12 Hunterian lectures may be awarded.
Lectures will normally be delivered in the UK. Exceptionally, they may be delivered outside the UK, subject to the approval of the Research Fellowships and Lectureship Group, provided a member of Council of this College is present for the lecture.
All these appointments are made on the condition that those elected will give the College first refusal to publish their lecture in the Annals. Copyright for publications will be retained by the College.
