2021 COUNCIL AWARDS

The Council Award honours outstanding Ontario physicians who have demonstrated excellence and come closest to meeting society's vision of an "ideal physician."

Four award winners are selected each year, who reflect the diversity of Ontario physicians with respect to specialty, practice setting, populations served, career stage and more.

CRITERIA

The criteria for selecting a physician for the Council Award are based on the seven physician roles of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada’s CanMEDS framework, which are identified as the essential qualities needed to practice modern medicine. 

MEDICAL EXPERT
COMMUNICATOR
COLLABORATOR
LEADER

The Council Award recognizes physicians whose performance in these roles is outstanding, recognizing that they may demonstrate more extensive expertise in some roles than in others. Details on the elements of each role are outlined on the CPSO's award webpage.
