Do you know a family physician dedicated to sharing their knowledge with residents or medical students? Have you benefited from a strong mentor in your career?

With teaching now taking place at more than 90 urban, regional, community and remote settings across the province, 3,500 family physicians play an increasingly important role as teachers, preceptors and mentors.

To recognize and honour some of the family physicians who have incorporated this important role with their clinical practice, we have created a new Exceptional Teacher Honour to recognize and celebrate some of BC’s dedicated community-based teachers and mentors.

Nominations will be considered throughout the year, and it’s easy to nominate.

If you are a colleague or former student and would like to nominate a community-based BC family physician for this honour, send an email to [email protected]  providing the name of the nominee and a few sentences describing why you think they deserve to be recognized.

We will send them a personal letter of congratulations and recognize their honour in our communications to members.
