The AMA’s Shine A Light program was launched in 2018 as a way to recognize AMA member physicians who are making a difference in the lives of their patients. Over the past few years, we’ve profiled dozens of physicians who’ve quietly gone above and beyond to ensure their patients get the care they need and deserve – often working late nights and long hours to make it happen.

While the pandemic made it harder to find the time to recognize the efforts of these exceptional physicians, we’re ready to start shining a light again – and we need your help to do it. Whether you’re a patient or a fellow physician, if you know a physician who has made a difference, please visit the Shine A Light page and complete our nomination form. 

We’d love to be able to recognize these everyday leaders and unsung heroes in future issues of Alberta Doctors Digest. We’ll reach out to them directly for an interview, and the AMA president will send them a personal letter of commendation and present them with a Shine A Light pin.

We’re looking forward to your nominations and to shining a light on physicians who put Patients First® in everything they do.
