Nominate your doctor

The BC College of Family Physicians is opening nominations for the second annual My Family Doctor Award.

The BC College of Family Physicians is opening nominations for the second annual My Family Doctor Award to patients who want to recognize the dedication and excellent work of their doctor.

Patients have the chance to nominate their family doctor by sharing a story about what makes him or her remarkable.

With these stories, the BCCFP is giving back to doctors who inspire and support our health by being at the centre of health care in BC.

“It’s important for us to recognize the important role of family physicians and the valued relationships they share with their families and colleagues,” says Dr. Garey Mazowita, BCCFP board member and CFPC President-Elect.

“My Family Doctor” award is part of Family Doctor Week  Nov. 10 to 15. This Canada-wide week recognizes the tireless efforts of our family doctors in providing quality care and building important patient-doctor relationships.

Nominations are open until March 31, 2015, and can be submitted online at or emailed to The second annual award will be given out in June in Vancouver.

The doctor and patient who are selected will both receive all-expenses paid travel to attend the event and will be recognized in their local media.
