The physician must be nominated by a third party.

A community may nominate itself or be nominated by a third party.

Prizes

BC Rural Health Award recipients receive a plaque, presented at RCCbc’s BC Rural Health Conference, and a $2,500 cash prize for a celebration in their home community. Any remaining funds from the celebration should be used within the physician’s practice or within the community (e.g., equipment purchase, medical journal subscription, community donation).
