The task of adjudicators, Dr N Moran and Dr C Tiloke was to select the most impressive research based on the relevance of the topic, clarity of methodology in addressing the objectives, and overall presentation of results.

First prize went to Dr Bantu Nodada for his research titled: Dating of Pregnancy in the Third Trimester using Foetal Trans-Cerebral.  Nodada’s work was supervised by Dr S Budhram.

Second was Dr John Habineza with a thesis titled: A Prospective Study to Determine the Prevalence of Anogenital Warts and HPV in Women with Pre-Malignant Cervical Lesions.  The supervisor was  Dr W Mphatswe.

Nodada and Habineza have been invited to present their research at the national registrar meeting organised by the SA Association of Trainees in O+G in Johannesburg on 24 October.
