In 1990 the widow of the late Dr. John Beausang, who graduated from UCC in 1924, made a donation of €1,270 to UCC to endow an annual prize in the memory of her husband.

The prize will consist of a cash award in the sum of c. €200.

It will be awarded annually to the best essay written on the Family Attachment Scheme that comprises part of the Continuous Assessment for module HC2002 and GM1010. The Family Attachment Scheme, organised by the Department of General Practice, affords medical students early on in their programme the opportunity to meet with a family, one of whose members suffers from a long-term health problem. Students are required to write an essay about this learning experience. Those essays achieving honours standard will be judged by members of a patient representative group. The essay adjudged best will be awarded "The Dr. John Beausang Prize".
