HONOURING AND INSPIRING A NEW GENERATION OF HEALTH LEADERS AND INNOVATORS

August 25, 2021
2021 CMHF Award IN

LONDON, ON – 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 2022 Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in Ottawa ON 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 partners with donors, MD Financial Management Inc. (MD) and Canada’s medical schools to recognize young leaders who exemplify qualities of CMHF Laureates: perseverance, collaboration and an entrepreneurial spirit.

“I am honoured to have been selected to receive the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Award,” said Amira Muftah, CMHF Award recipient from the University of Saskatchewan. “I’m grateful for this recognition and look forward to the momentum and opportunities this award will bring.”

Each of Canada’s faculties of medicine | health sciences facilitated the review of applicants and recommended one award recipient. Three letters of support are required by applicants including a non-academic community reference describing their community impact, along with a 1,000 word essay describing why they should be considered for the Award and articulating the qualities of the CMHF Laureate who inspires them most.
