The William Inman Prize was set up with a bequest from Dr William S. Inman, who died in 1968, 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... however preference will be given to psychodynamic or psychotherapeutic factors and to conditions of the eye."
The Research Board makes the award every five years.
The 2020 round is now closed.
The next round will open in 2025.
