AWARDS

Through its Awards Program, RDoC honours individuals who have contributed to improving various elements of the lives of resident doctors in Canada. There are currently three awards bestowed annually in the following categories: (a) wellness, (b) medical education, and (c) service to resident doctors.

Past recipients have included resident doctors, program directors, postgraduate medical education (PGME) administrators, and organizations that support resident doctors. RDoC award recipients gain both national and local recognition for their efforts. Because of this, the RDoC Awards Program is perhaps one of the most continually successful projects that we undertake.

THE RDoC MIKHAEL AWARD FOR MEDICAL EDUCATION
