There is less than a month left to submit your nominations for the Awards of Excellence. Three awards (Merit, Dr. Patricia Clugston Memorial for Excellence in Teaching, Residents’ Advocate) are given each year to outstanding individuals in the field of medicine. Recipients receive an awards ceremony in their honour, commemoration on a wall plaque in the Resident Doctors of BC office, a personal commemorative award, and a $1000 donation to the charity/charities of their choice. For more information on the awards, past recipients, and the nomination forms, click here.
