The aim of this annual prize are:

  • To encourage trainees and trainers to utilize video technology for training, and
  • To accumulate an SCTS education video library of training videos, which will be made available to SCTS members on the new SCTS website

There will be prizes for the best overall cardiac and thoracic video which will be voted for by fellow trainees and Trust Appointed Doctors during the planned SCTS Annual Meeting from a shortlist of videos.
