Selwyn College is pleased to announce that Steph Cadman (SE 2017) has been awarded the inaugural Bill Turnbull Prize for clinical medicine. Dr Cadman won the award thanks to her outstanding achievement in the clinical part of the medical course, for which she was given MB BChir with distinction. In addition to her academic excellence, she made a significant contribution to the Selwyn community – particularly the support of her medical colleagues – whilst a Selwyn student.

The Bill Turnbull Prize was created in memory of the television and radio broadcaster, who died in 2022. Bill Turnbull was a frequent visitor to Selwyn, and some of his treatment for cancer took place in the Ipswich hospital where many Cambridge students pursue their clinical learning. We are grateful to the benefactors who made this possible, and we would welcome any further donations to the Bill Turnbull fund. Please contact our development team: The photograph shows Bill at Selwyn on one of the occasions when he talked to students.




Dr Cadman is now working in the NHS as an FY1 doctor at UCLH – the cluster of hospitals based around University College Hospital in London. We congratulate her on this award.
