3. BAUS Gold Medal

BAUS gold medalIn 2008, BAUS President, Professor Tony Mundy, and BAUS Council agreed to institute a Gold Medal (pictured left) to complement the St Peter’s Medal. The Gold Medal is awarded to an individual (who may or may not be a clinician) who has contributed to the development and advancement of British Urology as a corporate entity. This is distinct from the award of the St Peter’s Medal which is given for a notable contribution to the science and practice of urological surgery.

The medals are awarded by Council on the recommendation of a Medals and Awards Committee, the membership of which includes the current President, Vice-President and Honorary Secretary. Up to four previous medal holders are in attendance and no member of the Committee is eligible for an award.

The award is presented at the BAUS Annual Meeting in June each year.

5. Certificate of Distinction

In 2000 BAUS Council decided to create an award to recognise individuals who have had a long and significant relationship with the Association, its Annual Meeting and, most importantly, its annual exhibition.

Individuals honoured with this award will have shown a continuing interest and awareness of the Association and its educational activities and will be held in high regard by the membership of BAUS. We are not only interested in individuals from “head office” but also welcome local nominees.

The Certificate is awarded by Council on the recommendation of a Medals and Awards Committee, the membership of which includes the President, Vice President, Honorary Secretary and three elected members of Council.

The Certificate is presented by the President at the BAUS Annual Meeting in June.
