Student Voice Prize 2021

23 September 2021

The Student Voice Prize returns for 2021 on the 6th October! The Student Voice Prize is an annual, international essay competition hosted by Findacure and Medics4RareDiseases.

The competition aims to raise the profile of rare disease within the medical field, particularly with medical students, nurses and scientists who may have never come across rare diseases in their training.

Every year, as part of the competition there is a Patient Group Pairing Scheme. The scheme gives students the chance to be paired with a rare disease patient group to learn first-hand about their condition and patient experience. It involves the student and patient group representative having a conversation over the phone or zoom for up to one hour so that the student can gather better insights into the experience of living with a rare condition. It's a great way for patient group advocates to raise awareness of their rare condition amongst the clinicians of the future, share insights and build connections!
