William Inman prize

The William Inman Prize was set up with a bequest from Dr William S. Inman, who died in 1968. Dr Inman was an ophthalmic surgeon and psychoanalyst and the prize was established in memory of his work and to recognise “the best original work on psychosomatic ophthalmology in The British Journal of Medical Psychology (now Psychology and Psychotherapy: Theory, Research and Practice) or other medical journal approved by the Society”.

The definition of eligible work was later extended to include “any contribution to the effects of psychological factors upon physical conditions” but that “preference will be given to psychodynamic or psychotherapeutic factors and to conditions of the eye”.

The Society's Research Board  makes the award every five years; the next award will be made in 2020.
