Promoted by the BIAL Foundation, the Prémio BIAL de Medicina Clínica was created in 1984 with the aim of recognizing an intellectual, original work on any freely chosen medical topic on clinical practice, with results of high quality and relevance.


In the 20th edition of the Award, the jury is once again chaired by pathologist Manuel Sobrinho Simões and includes professors from faculties and schools of medicine in Portugal. The Prémio BIAL de Medicina Clínica is worth €100,000 and has the patronage of the President of the Republic, the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities, and the Portuguese Medical Association. In addition to the awarded work, honourable mentions (maximum two) worth €10,000 each can be awarded.


Since its establishment, the BIAL Award has considered 686 entries from 1742 researchers, doctors, and scientists from 20 countries. In 19 editions, it has recognised 105 works by 302 authors, with more than 320,000 copies of 41 award-winning works having been published and distributed free of charge to health professionals.
