The Intensive Care Society wishes to promote and encourage the presentation of the best critical care science in the UK. The Rising Star – ICS Gold Medal is awarded annually to a young investigator (nurse, AHP or doctor) who has shown excellence in science relevant to intensive care medicine. The candidate should submit an abstract, not exceeding 500 words and following the instructions to authors below.

A maximum of five abstracts will be shortlisted for the Gold Medal oral presentation at SOA23 taking place on the 27-29 June at the ICC Birmingham. The time allocated for each presentation is 15 minutes (13 minutes presentation, plus 2 minutes Q&A).


The researcher is usually someone who has completed a substantial body of work (e.g. MD/PhD) and should not be in a Consultant / Senior Lecturer post or equivalent (although where the body of work was completed prior to recent appointment they will be considered).
