The BCMJ is pleased to announce the winner of the 2012 UBC Med Student Blog Contest. While all the entries were interesting and engaging, Mr Greg Costello’s heartfelt essay, “Touched,” resonated with BCMJ Editorial Board members, and was chosen as the $250 grand prize winner.
Medical student writers should also keep in mind the $1000 J.H. MacDermot Prize, awarded annually to the best full-length med student article published in our print edition.
Congratulations Mr Costello—we look forward to your future contributions to the BCMJ.
