Calcutta Eden Hospital Annual Prize

The Calcutta (Kolkata) Eden Hospital, a major maternity and gynaecological hospital and part of the Calcutta 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 of book tokens to final year medical students or junior doctors (FY1) in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

The Calcutta (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.
