Canadian Medical Hall of Fame

Induction Ceremony

Please note that the 2020 Induction Ceremony has been postponed until 
THURSDAY, APRIL 29TH, 2021 - still in Vancouver in partnership with The University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine (public health policy permitting of course). 

While virtual celebration options have been considered extensively, a strong influence in the decision to postpone comes from the voice of past Laureates who describe the in-person gathering as a truly moving tribute, and perhaps one of the most memorable things about being inducted into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame. We do not want to cheat our current inductees of this experience.

In that same spirit, while we would typically select six new inductees this September for induction next spring, we will forgo this process this year and wait until September 2021 to choose new inductees. Trying to properly honour 12 inductees in one evening is not logistically feasible and hosting two Induction Ceremonies in one year would be a challenge for the CMHF given our size and resources.  

We hope you can join us next spring for this memorable and inspiring event.

 

Greetings from Committee Chair Dermot Kelleher, MD

Canadian Medical Hall of Fame 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, they are role models who inspire young Canadians to pursue careers in the health sciences. Six Canadian medical heroes are inducted annually to the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame.
