Nominations for the 2013 Minnesota Family Physician of the Year, sponsored by the Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP), are being accepted from now through January 4.
The award is presented annually to a doctor who specializes in family medicine. This doctor should represent the highest ideas of the specialty.
Nominators should describe the candidate’s outstanding personal and professional qualities and community involvement. Family physicians who have been nominated in previous years, but who have not received the award, can be nominated again.
Nomination letters can be sent to the MAFP office located at 600 South Highway 169, Suite 1680, St. Louis Park, MN 55426, or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions can be directed to the MAFP office at (952) 542-0130 or 1-800-999-8198.
All letters/e-mails will be carefully read and considered by a task force of family physicians who will select up to four finalists. The MAFP Board of Directors will choose one physician to receive the award. It will be presented in April.
Nominees must be members of the MAFP. To check on a physician’s membership status, e-mail email@example.com or call the MAFP office.
