The Alberta Medical Association is calling for Achievement Award nominations for individuals who have contributed to the improvement of the quality of health care in Alberta. 

The Medal for Distinguished Service is given to a physician(s) who has made an outstanding personal contribution to medicine and to the people of Alberta and who has, in the process, contributed to the art and/or science of medicine while raising the standards of medical practice.

The Medal of Honor is awarded to a non-physician(s) who has raised the standards of health care and contributed to the advancement of medical research, medical education, health care organization, health education and/or health promotion to the public.

Nominations must be submitted by April 30. The awards will be presented at the AMA’s fall 2021 annual general meeting.

Wondering what happened with the fall 2020 awards program?

If you visit the website page devoted to our awards, you may wonder what happened with the fall 2020 awards program. The Committee on Achievement Awards recommended that the AMA confer special recognition this year on Alberta physicians who practice in the specialty of Public Health and Preventive Medicine for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The medals program was placed on hiatus and we are now looking forward to its return this fall.
