The Geoff Mews Memorial Fellows’ Prize is a prestigious award named in memory of Geoff Mews. Geoffrey (Geoff) Mews was a pioneer of interventional cardiology in Australasia and a mentor for many of the current leaders in the field. He trained initially in Perth, WA then did a cardiology fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, USA, before returning to Perth in the late 1970s. As one of the earliest adopters of percutaneous coronary intervention in the region, he was innovative and technically skilled, but he was also a highly motivated advocate for his patients. His important role as an inspirational teacher is remembered in this ANZET fellowship.

This prize is awarded for the best clinical case presented at ANZET. Any interventional fellow or senior registrar directly involved in the case can submit an abstract for consideration of presentation. The abstract should be a clinical interventional cardiology case, which can be coronary or structural. 


Eligibility Criteria

  • Submissions must be received by 12 June 2024.
  • This must be a case that you have been involved in personally, not something you have observed from a distance. 
  • Authors must be a member of CSANZ or have submitted an application for membership by the submission deadline.
  • The case must have been performed in Australia or New Zealand.
  • The case should be interesting and instructive; a complication and its management may be very appropriate for presentation, but the committee is looking for learning opportunities generally, and this competition is not intended to be focused on complications.
  • Abstracts must not exceed 250 words and this will be strictly enforced; longer abstracts will be rejected without further consideration.
  • Your abstract should also satisfy all other abstract requirements and policies.  

Finalist selection 
Three finalists will be selected to present their cases at the ANZET Meeting with notifications being sent in  July 2024.

Presentation format and judging criteria
Finalists will be expected to present the clinical history, angiographic findings, and other relevant investigations. This will be in the format of 10 minutes for the presentations and 5 minutes for questions.

Finalist presentations will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Content of presentation/educational value of case
  • Quality of presentation
  • Ability to respond to questions related to the presentation
