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.
Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoC) is now seeking nominations for its 2021 Awards. Click on the names of the Awards below to link to details about each award as well as eligibility criteria and access to the online nomination form.

Outstanding Volunteers of the Year
The Outstanding Volunteer of the Year Award is given to an RDoC volunteer or volunteers who have stood out amongst our volunteer base. The award recognizes an individual(s) that has made outstanding contributions to RDoC and who would not otherwise receive public recognition for their efforts. Nominations can be submitted by current RDoC volunteers. The recipients are announced at RDoC’s Annual General Meeting.
