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.
