DFM Awards and Recognition

2021 Department of Family Medicine Faculty and Staff Awards

Congratulations to faculty and staff who were recently recognized for their contributions and outstanding service for the 1st annual DFM Faculty and Staff Awards. The awards highlight the positive impact our colleagues are making in the department. We would like to give special thanks to the newly established Awards Recognition Committee (ARC) for developing the awards, promoting, selecting and honouring the award recipients. The development of the ARC Committee -chaired by Dr. Eric Wooltorton- serves to support the department's strategic goal to increase faculty and staff engagement by fostering equity, diversity and inclusion.
