Kolkata Eden Hospital Annual Prize

The Kolkata Eden Hospital, a major maternity and gynaecological hospital and part of the Kolkata Medical College Hospital was the medical school of Mr Prabhat Chattopadhyay FRCOG. His generosity has enabled the RCOG to offer an annual prize of £350 to final year medical students or Foundation Year 1 (FY1) in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The Kolkata Eden Hospital is notable because it is where the highly reputed Professor Green Armytage spent his professional career for 25 years. During his tenure, he designed ‘uterine haemostatic forceps’ which are still widely used around the world in caesarean sections.




This prize is open to final year medical students or Foundation Year 1 (FY1) doctors in the UK and Republic of Ireland.


The prize is awarded for the best submission of a case study that outlines your insight into any aspect of obstetrics and gynaecology undertaken during your training.
