'The medical student response to the Covid-19 pandemic’ - now closed. See winning essays below

Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, medical students were encouraged to participate in the NHS response raising unique challenges and potential ethical, professional and legal issues. At the start of 2021, the IME invited UK medical students to submit an essay entitled ‘The medical student response to the Covid-19 pandemic’ aimed at highlighting the ethical issues raised by their experiences in responding to the pandemic. We received an excellent response with medical students keen to express their individual experiences.

Seven prizes of £300 each were awarded, plus complimentary IME student membership for 12 months.
