We are pleased to announce that the BTS Abstract Prizes and Clinical Grand Round competition are once again part of the programme for the Summer Meeting.

The Clinical Grand Round is open to any Specialist Trainee or Allied Health Professional.  The best three submissions, as refereed by senior members of the Society and members of the BTS Education and Training Committee, will be shortlisted and the authors invited to present their cases. 

Each shortlisted application will receive free entry to the Meeting and there will be additional prizes for the winners.  

Abstract deadline is 23:59 on Sunday 31st March. Submissions can be made via the Abstract submission button to the right of this page. Please read the instructions carefully before you submit your abstract and if you have any queries please contact at any point in the process.
