The BC College of Family Physicians’ My Family Doctor Award provides British Columbians with the opportunity to recognize and honour their own family doctors, celebrating the doctor-patient relationship that supports good health. Five family physicians are selected – one from each health authority.

Congratulations to the five family doctors who received our 2020 awards.

The deadline for 2021 nominations is March 31, 2021.

For an idea of what to include in your nomination, here is an extract from a nomination for a previous recipient:

Dr. X is an incredible physician. She treated me first as a human being and then as a patient. She slowly took the time to earn my trust, which was far from easy. She made adaptations to procedures so that I was able to follow through with regular healthcare screenings and minor procedures . . . Dr. X always referred me to specialists when the need arose, and she took the time to answer endless questions about what to expect during these appointments and procedures and assuaged my fears . . . She helped me navigate insurance forms and was an incredible listener and one of the least judgmental people I have ever met . . . I also know that she did work for the hospitals and care homes in our community, often being a voice and face of comfort for her elderly patients and their families. She did work for the College of Physicians and Surgeons as well.”
