For years, they’ve kept you and your community strong. They’re a healer. A role model.  They’re dedicated to maintaining great healthcare close to home, keeping you and your community strong.

Give a healthcare hero in your community a healthy dose of recognition - Nominate your local doctor for a Rural Physician Award of Distinction.

The RPAP Award of Distinction was created in 2002 to recognize the contributions of all rural physicians, especially those ‘unsung heroes’ who provide Alberta rural communities with outstanding medical services and who also make huge contributions to medical practice and their communities.

The deadline for this year’s award submission is June 1, 2016 - so act now!


To be eligible for an RPAP Rural Physician Award of Distinction, the nominee must presently live and work in a rural Alberta community, and have done so for more than twelve years.

Nominees must also have exhibited superior commitment and contribution to the community through medical practice, teaching, research and/or community service.

Click here to download a nomination form for 2016, and tell us about your nominee:

How have they improved your community? Have their superior contributions and commitments through medical practice, teaching, research and/or community service made a difference to your community?

What are some of the obstacles they have overcome to achieve their contributions? What are some of the nominee’s personal characteristics that have made their achievements possible?

Prepare to Celebrate!

If your nomination is successful, RPAP will honour them with a professionally produced profile video, telling the story of their outstanding achievement!

Recognition of the successful recipient will occur at a future RPAP event. The recognition video and the RPAP Rural Physician Award of Distinction will be presented at this time.
