in Medcetera by

Every year, the BMJ Group gives away awards to illustrious individuals and organizations working towards ensuring that we live in a better world. While all the segments are very closely fought and feature some of the world’s most sterling physicians and physician-led organizations, one segment which I closely follow is the junior doctor of the year award. And this year’s nominees are:
