An annual award will be given to the selected third year family medicine resident - $500.00 plus a plaque - at the NDAFP Annual Meeting.
- Encourage family medicine residents in the practice of family medicine and in the activities of the North Dakota Academy of Family Physicians.
- Encourage role modeling among family medicine residents.
- To recognize positive attributes in future practicing family physicians.
We will look to reward a mature third year family medicine resident who demonstrates an exceptional interest in and commitment to family medicine. The following qualities and activities will be evaluated in selecting the awardee:
- Commitment to patient-centered practice
- Involvement in scholarly inquiry
- Community involvement
- Service to family medicine, either through Academy involvement and/or service to the residency or other family medicine organizations
- Commitment to excellence
- Passion for Family Medicine
A selection committee from the NDAFP Foundation Board of Directors will make the selection.
Each of the Family Medicine Residency programs in North Dakota may nominate a third year resident by each year’s deadline, as determined by the Executive Director. The nominee from each residency should be selected by the local faculty. The nomination should be accompanied by a letter of support from the program director and a member of the local clinical faculty. The nominee from each residency should provide the selection committee with a three hundred word or less autobiographical sketch.
The Residency Directors will be notified of the recipient as soon as possible.
