Family doctors work in practices, clinics, hospitals and universities across BC. Every year, the BC College of Family Physicians (BCCFP) awards program provides peers and patients with the opportunity to recognize and honour some of the province’s exceptional family doctors. We also have a special award open to other professionals who have made a significant contribution to family medicine or a positive impact on community health.
