King's medical student shortlisted for prestigious award

Phase 3 medical student Sally Bramley has been recognised as an emerging talent in psychiatry as she was announced as one of the shortlisted candidates for the Royal College of Psychiatrists’ ‘Medical Student of the Year Award 2013’ at the annual Royal College of Psychiatrists Awards ceremony held on 14 November 2013.

The award is to recognise a medical student who has demonstrated a level of achievement ‘over and above that expected for their years of training with achievements and experience reflecting a specific interest in Psychiatry as a career’.

As president of King’s Psychiatry Society, Sally organised the first National Student Psychiatry Conference and this is now established as an annual touring event. She has also been responsible for pioneering schemes to expand undergraduate education in psychiatry including organising psychiatry clinical skills sessions in association with Rethink, a national mental health charity.  As part of a Student Selected Component that she set up in basic psychiatry clinical skills, she supports students in giving information sessions on mental health topics to local school students. 

Professor Stuart Carney, Dean of Medical Education said, ‘Sally has made an exceptional contribution to the psychiatric knowledge and skills of her fellow students both at King’s and nationally. This is a very prestigious award and to be shortlisted is a great achievement’.
