Call for Rural Award Nominations

EDMONTON, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - Has a local doctor made a big difference in your rural community?  Has your rural community successfully used a new approach for recruiting and retaining physicians? 

The Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP) invites rural residents, communities and organizations to develop nominations for three prestigious awards: 

Early Careerist Award
This award recognizes the significant contributions of a rural physician within their first twelve years of practice. They are already making a difference for their clients, their community and medical practice.

Rural Physician Award of Distinction
This award recognizes a rural physician who presently lives and works in rural Alberta and has done so for more than 12 years. They demonstrate superior commitment and contributions through medical practice, teaching, research and/or community service.

Alberta Rural Community Recruitment and Retention Award
In partnership with the Alberta Chambers of Commerce, this award is presented to recognize a rural Alberta community that has best developed innovative and collaborative approaches and solutions resulting in successful physician recruitment and retention in their area.

The nomination deadline is 5:00 p.m. 31 March 2011. For more detailed nomination information, go to the RPAP website at and click on What's New or call toll-free 1-866-423-9911.
