Medical Student Leadership Awards

FMF 2016 Vancouver

Supported by the Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and by Scotiabank.

These awards recognize the leadership abilities of outstanding medical students in their final year of study currently enrolled at each of the 17 Canadian medical schools.

Award recipients will be invited to attend Family Medicine Forum (FMF) in Montréal, November 8-11, 2017; the Medical Student and Family Medicine Resident Leadership Workshop; and to other special events for students and residents at FMF.

Selection Process

A selection committee comprised of student and faculty representatives at each Canadian medical school is asked to identify their nominees for a Medical Student Leadership Award. The nominee is not required to match to the same university in order to be considered.

Nomination Process

A letter of support from a faculty member addressing the nominee’s skills as a leader must be included. These letters of support are an important component in the selection process and should include sufficient information on your candidate’s leadership skills to support the nomination.


Nominations must be submitted online. The deadline is June 20, 2017, 4pm EST/EDT. The Honours and Awards Committee will approve the nominations for these awards and inform the recipients in July.
