The Geoff Mews 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. Abstracts are marked and three are accepted for presentation on the basis of: illustration of key learning point(s) gained from the clinical case and, the quality and interest of the clinical case itself. The winner will be determined by the above in addition to the quality of the oral presentation, the fellow/senior registrar’s involvement in the case and, the ability to answer questions from the moderators and the audience.
Submissions for the Geoff Mews Memorial ANZET Fellows’ Prize close on Sunday 4 July 2021.
The ANZET Executive Committee is pleased to rename the Fellows Prize 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.
