Keble Medical student wins Wronker Prize

Friday 03 July 2015

Third year Medical student Owen Duffey has been awarded the prestigious Martin Wronker Prize for most outstanding performance in the Final Honour School of Medical Sciences.

Dr Simon Hunt, Emeritus Fellow and former Medicine tutor, writes “Only twice before did Keble medics get the Wronker Prize - at least during my 38 years.  The first was Simon Morley in 1993, now a distinguished Consultant Radiologist at University College Hospital and co-author of a very successful book:  Accident and Emergency Radiology: a survival guide.  The second was Andrew Murchison in 2010, who is still training here in Oxford.”

In 2014, Owen was also awarded the Gibbs prize for best overall performance in his 1st BM part 2 exams. He scored merits in all four of the exams covering Neuroscience, Pathology, Applied Physiology and Psychology for medicine.
