LONDON, ON, Sept. 22, 2017

LONDON, ON, Sept. 22, 2017 /CNW/ - Second year medical students with an established track record of community leadership, superior communication skills and demonstrated interest in advancing knowledge are recognized today with the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (CMHF) Award.  Each recipient receives a cash prize of $5,000 and a travel subsidy to attend the 2018 Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in London, Ontario on April 12, 2018, where they will have the opportunity to meet CMHF Laureates, and interact with health leaders from across the country.

The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (CMHF) partners with donors, MD Financial Management and Canada's medical schools to recognize these young leaders who exemplify qualities of CMHF Laureates: perseverance, collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit.

"We set out to establish a medical student award of excellence that would hold the kind of recognition that membership in the CMHF does for our 125 Laureates," said CMHF Board Chair Dr. Bryce Taylor. "The demonstrated knowledge, skill and extraordinary commitment of our Award recipients are truly outstanding, and these future leaders are genuinely deserving of this prestigious honour."

"MD congratulates all of the 2017 Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Award recipients," said Allison Seymour, MD's Executive Vice President of Member and Community Engagement. "At MD, we understand the financial challenges students can face as they progress through medical school. That's why we're proud to support these awards, which help students financially while also recognizing their leadership achievements. Last year's winners were a testament to the level of achievement among Canadian medical students, and we are committed to doing our part to support these students on their journey to becoming Canada's future
health leaders."

Applicants submitted a 1,000 word essay describing why they should be considered for the Award and articulating the qualities and impact of the CMHF Laureate who inspires them most. Three letters of support were also required, including a non-academic community reference describing impact. Canada's faculties of medicine/health sciences facilitated the review of applicants and each had the opportunity to recommended one award recipient.
