  • The Award may be made for a specific achievement or for a body of work extending over a period of years;
  • An award may be made where the potential of early work indicated - in the view of the nominators(s) and expert referees - a strong possibility of achievement;
  • Consideration will be given to achievements in all medical disciplines and related science(s) and technology;
  • The Award, while normally made to an individual, may also be made to a group, especially where this reflects the multidisciplinary bias of the Award, and where the members of the group meet the criteria selection;
