Yale UCL Medical and Engineering Students' Poetry Competition 2013

This year’s Yale UCL Collaborative poetry competition winners are revealed

The winners of the Yale UCL Medical and Engineering Students’ Poetry Competition 2013 have been announced following the submission of over 85 poems.

Lorenzo R. Sewanan (Yale Medicine) picked up first prize for his poem The Gift. Joint second place was awarded to Andrew Melville (UCL Medicine) for his poem Air, and Nicoleta Ciobanu (UCL Engineering) for her poem Medusa.

The poetry competition is now in its third year following the success of The Yale UCL Medical Students’ Poetry Competitions in 2011 and 2012. The fight for the title of best poem is open to all Yale and UCL medical and engineering students.

The competition gives students the opportunity to show off their creative side by writing and submitting a poem on a topic of their choice. The poems were judged by a panel of Yale and UCL judges and the winning poet was awarded a £1,000 (~$1500) prize. The runners up were awarded £500.

The judging panel included Professor John Martin, Co-Director of Yale UCL Collaboration (Biomedicine) and UCL Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine; Marco Federighi, UCL Sub-Dean and Faculty Tutor in Engineering Sciences; Professor Barry Zaret, Yale Professor Emeritus and Senior Research Scientist in Medicine (Cardiology) and Professor of Diagnostic Radiology; and Professor Timothy Mathews, UCL Professor of French and Comparative Criticism.
