Resident physicians often work as part of a team providing care to patients and the experience of that team is greatly dependent on the contributions of all its members.
This award was established to recognize our allied-health colleagues who value and exemplify a positive team-based approach and who advocate for healthy and caring work environments for all members of the team and our patients.
Award Eligibility: Eligible recipients include non-physician colleagues or volunteers who are committed to both enhancing team-based care and the environment where care is provided. Nominees should demonstrate an ability to work positively and productively in a team-centred environment and demonstrate recognition of the challenges associated with extended work shifts or other resident-specific circumstances. Family members of the PARA Executive Board and the PARA Assembly are not eligible for this award. Award recipients are not eligible for re-nomination for a two-year term.
Nomination Process: Any resident physician nominating an individual for this award should explain why the individual merits recognition. Please detail how the nominee has demonstrated exemplary dedication to the care provision team.
Awarded annually. DEADLINE: March 31 of each year.
