Family Medicine Resident Awards for Scholarly Achievement

Supported by the College of Family Physicians of Canada

The Family Medicine Resident Awards for Scholarly Achievement recognize outstanding academic accomplishments by family medicine residents (R1, R2, R3). These awards are intended to stimulate family medicine research and innovation in education. One recipient or team from each faculty of family medicine across Canada will be selected.

In addition to these awards, all nominations submitted on behalf Francophone family medicine residents will be forwarded to the Awards Committee of the Quebec College of Family Physicians for the selection of the 2015 NADINE ST-PIERRE AWARD, which focuses on the best scholarly work of an outstanding Francophone family medicine resident in Canada. To be considered for a Nadine St-Pierre Award, the nomination must include a full manuscript in French describing the scholarly work.

Selection and Nomination Process:

The chairs, postgraduate directors, and research directors from each Canadian family medicine residency program are asked to identify the department’s best scholarly work by one of their residents, using the department’s own criteria. Their nominee will become their school’s recipient of a Family Medicine Resident Award for Scholarship.

Further information will be sent to the postgraduate and research directors in order for them to complete this process.


Nominations must be submitted online. The deadline is June 12, 2015. The Honours and Awards Committee will approve the nominations for these awards and will inform the recipients in July 2015.
