This Prize is awarded to the presenter of the best oral presentation given during the Orthopaedic Research Prize Session:
The Waterford Surgical October Meeting has had an Orthopaedic component since 2007. This is a reflection of the fact that there is a busy and active regional Orthopaedic Department at University Hospital Waterford.
Orthopaedic research presented at the meeting has always been of high quality. All major units around Ireland have contributed to it over the years, and continue to do so. Presentations for the Orthopaedic Research prize take place at a parallel session in the early afternoon of the day of the meeting; in addition there is a separate prize for the best poster.
Following the parallel research sessions, the visiting Orthopaedic speaker is one of the presenters at the final plenary session.
