History

The annual ENT UK Foundation Research and Training Prizes in Memory of Rowena Ryan were set up in 2015 on her 10th death anniversary to celebrate trainee-led Audit, Research and Training initiatives within the London and SE England region (Kent, Surrey and Sussex). In 2021, the awards extended to national and international audiences under the umbrella of ENT UK’s Academic Foundation.

Rowena Ryan, a young consultant ENT surgeon at Northwick Park London, was a trainees’ champion and strong advocate for improving training and clinical practice standards. With various hats on in regional (TPD) and national roles (SAC), she provided support and mentorship for basic and higher surgical trainees. She oversaw clinical practice guideline development and national audit projects through CAPAG.

Miss Ryan balanced a busy work and home life schedule. Prematurely in her early 40s, she developed a short illness and died from pancreatic cancer, leaving behind her husband and two young children. In her name, we celebrate ENT training and acknowledge the work, sacrifices and achievements of trainees and trainers.
