The prize is awarded at the Faculty of Pain Medicine's annual general meeting. It consists of a certificate and a grant for educational or research purposes.

Dr Roopa Gawarikar was awarded the 2020 Dean's Prize for her paper, 'Targeting two birds with one stone: Efficacy of ketamine in pain and opioid reduction'.
