In acknowledging the importance both the MAA and the Institute of Medical Illustration (IMI) played in Peter Cull’s life, his widow, Bettine, kindly arranged for ten handcrafted sterling silver medals be struck in his honour and divided between the two organisations so that they could be presented in his memory to an individual who has advanced and raised the standards of medical illustration and education.

The first IMI recipient, Geoff Gilbert, the Institute’s Honorary Treasurer, was presented with his medal at their Annual Conference in September 2013. The first MAA recipient was Dr Michael O’Brien who was awarded his medal at the Annual Conference at Guy’s Hospital in April 2014. Successive medals will be awarded by the incumbent Chairman at that time.
