THE MICHELLE ZALKIN SCHOLARSHIP
Paediatric trainees from all across London are invited to apply for this exciting and very special scholarship. The Scholarship was established in memory of Dr Michelle Zalkin to promote excellence in safeguarding and child protection. It offers exceptional trainees with a proven interest in child protection the chance to undertake the UCL Masters in Paediatrics and Child Health. Michelle gained a distinction on the MSc course, then worked in Community Paediatrics specialising in child protection before her untimely death at the age of 40 in 2013. The scholarship was established by Michelle’s family and friends to encourage the next generation to continue and build upon her work.
The Michelle Zalkin Scholarship is an individual award of £10,000 for a maximum of one student per academic year. The selected student will be academically strong and have a focus on child protection in their daily work. An interview will be conducted to assess commitment to child protection.
