The BC Family Physician of the Year Award recognizes a family physician who provides exemplary care to patients and takes part in activities that contribute to excellence in family medicine.

This is annual peer-nominated award provides BC family physicians to nominate a colleague who:

  • shows outstanding leadership in areas of advocacy, community service, and/or education; and
  • supports excellence in family medicine through activities that go beyond direct patient care, and may include involvement in community medical services, professional organizations or other contributions to the community-at-large.

Congratulations to the 2019 recipient, Dr. Catherine Textor. The call for nominations for the 2020 award will go out in February, and submissions are due by March 31, 2020.

Please note that if you are a patient, you can honour your own BC family doctor with a nomination for our My Family Doctor Award.
