This award was established to stimulate research and scholarship in Saskatchewan. This funding supports members in active practice to carry out research activities related to meeting the changing needs of their patients and communities within Saskatchewan.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada has many different awards and honours available to celebrate the achievements and outstanding work of members by offering funding for scholarships and grants and by promoting their successes.
The Honours and Awards Program offers grants, scholarships and awards to recognize, and support family physicians, family medicine residents, and medical students committed to education, research, and excellence in the practice of family medicine.
If you know of an outstanding family physician please nominate them for the Saskatchewan Family Physician of the Year Award. We know that there are some outstanding family doctors in this province and each year we have an opportunity to recognize one of them.
We are also accepting nominations for the CFPC Awards of Excellence. Do you know someone who has done something particularly innovative or exceptional in the last 1 or 2 years? Saskatchewan has the opportunity to select up to 2 individuals to be recognized for their activities in the Province or around the World.
Finally, we are accepting nominations for the Michael Krochak Award. This is a Saskatchewan Chapter award which recognizes individuals (physician or non-physician) or groups that have made a significant contribution to family medicine in Saskatchewan over the years.
