Antony Palmer won the Academic Prize, for research undertaken during a period of full-time academia. Alex Martin is the winner of the Clinical Prize, for research undertaken whilst in a clinical placement.
The two Kenwright Prizes are named after Professor John Kenwright, 5th Nuffield Professor of Orthopaedics and are selected by the panel of guest speakers.
"I am very grateful to have been awarded this prize for presenting the outcome of a randomised controlled trial comparing physiotherapy with arthroscopic hip surgery for symptomatic femoroacetabular impingement (FAIT)", said Antony.
He added: "The study was performed by a large multidisciplinary team from hospitals across the country and it is privilege to share our results."
The annual research conference for Oxford orthopaedics is fondly known as 'Duthie Day' after Professor Robert Duthie, the 4th Nuffield Professor of Orthopaedics.
The conference is attended by all trainees and consultants from across the whole deanery and includes a number of presentations from visiting guest speakers on a topic of their choosing, as well as short presentations by the registrars.
“This year we were honoured to have guest speakers from across the Globe who delivered a series of diverse and highly topical presentations. The standard of the registrar research was extremely high, and congratulations must go to Antony and Alex who were very worthy winners of the Kenwright prizes in both categories”, says Nick Beresford-Cleary, senior resident of the Oxford Orthopaedic Trainees Association and on the organising committee for the conference.
The winner of the clinical Kenwright prize is eligible to present at the 'Best of the Best' forum at the next British Orthopaedic Association meeting.
The day was held at Merton College and was sponsored by industry.
