13 May 2014

UCL Medical Student Ersong Shang has won the Duke Elder Undergraduate Prize in Ophthalmology – 2014. 550 students from 36 Medical Schools in the United Kingdom and Ireland competed in the Duke Elder Undergraduate Prize Examination in March. The standard is deliberately high and those taking the top places are to be congratulated. Ersong will collect £400.00 or the equivalent prize (a chance to visit St John’s Eye Hospital in Jerusalem).

Two further students were commended by the council of The Royal College of Ophthalmologists – Jacob Waxman (Tied 5th) and Marianne Neary (Tied 15th).
