Nominate a Health Hero for Induction into the CMHF

The AMA’s Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for the CMHF Laureates.

The committee discusses and identifies potential AMA nominees for the annual CMHF award. If you know of a worthy candidate, we would love to know about them in order to increase our pool for consideration.

All suggested nominees are welcome!

Please complete the nomination form and email it to by May 1. 


Six Canadian medical heroes are inducted annually to the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. CMHF Laureates are Canadian citizens whose outstanding leadership and contributions to medicine and the health sciences, in Canada or abroad, have led to extraordinary improvements in human health.

Their work may be a single meritorious contribution or a lifetime of superior accomplishments. Pioneers in their field, laureates are role models who inspire young Canadians to pursue careers in the health sciences.

The CMHF perceives health leadership to include many professions and roles including doctors, researchers, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, policy makers and more.

Nominees may be living or posthumous.
