The BCCFP Coin is a new way to honour family physicians who deserve recognition for their work. Nominations will be considered throughout the year, and it’s easy to nominate.

Modelled on the coins used by the Canadian military to recognize special achievements, the BCCFP Coin is designed to honour some of the unsung heroes in family medicine – the family physicians we admire for carrying out “good work.”

If you are a BCCFP member and would like to nominate a colleague for the BCCFP Coin, simply send an email to toby.kirshin@bccfp.bc.ca providing the name of the nominee and a few sentences describing why you think they deserve to be recognized.

Recipients will receive the specially designed BCCFP Coin and display stand, along with a personal card from the BCCFP president. They will also be recognized on our website, e-newsletter and annual report.
