Essay Contest

St Luke’s Guild Essay Competition

The Annual Essay Competition in Bioethics was instituted in 1999 and ran until 2014, open to all undergraduate medical students at the University of Alberta. The purpose of this competition was to encourage medical students to think about current issues in medical ethics and to develop their thoughts into a logical and literature based paper in support of their opinions. It is greatly hoped that interest in the competition will find a resurgence as students are faced with the loss of conscience protections in Canada.
