The British Association of Audiovestibular Physicians Hallpike Prize is awarded annually for the best project of the past 24-month period (research, audit or review of subject) in the area of Audiovestibular Medicine. The project can be unpublished, published or be in form of a presentation or poster, but the prize committee must be able to assess its quality from the available information.
The Hallpike prize was first awarded by the British Association of Audiovestibular Physicians in 2009, following the kind donation of Dr Jeremy Hallpike, Emeritus Neurologist from Adelaide, Australia, in honour of his father Charles Skinner Hallpike, a key figure in the early days of the development of Audiovestibular Medicine as a specialty.
This prize committee consists of the Chairs of the Education, Audit and Clinical Standards BAAP Subcommittees under the chairpersonship of the Vice President of BAAP.
The successful candidate receives the prize certificate and a cheque for £300 which will be awarded at the March 2023 BAAP Annual Conference (or in exceptional circumstances at the October 2023 Hallpike Symposium) when the prize winner is expected to present his/her work.
