​F.N.G. Starr Award

The Frederic Newton Gisborne Starr Award represents the highest award that lies within the power of the Canadian Medical Association to bestow upon one of its members. Achievement is the prime requisite in determining the recipient of this award.

Medallists may have achieved distinction by:

  • making an outstanding contribution to science, the fine arts or nonmedical literature
  • achievement in serving humanity under conditions calling for courage or the endurance of hardship in the promotion of health or the saving of life
  • advancing the humanitarian or cultural life of his or her community
  • improving medical service in Canada

Such achievement should be so outstanding as to serve as an inspiration and a challenge to the medical profession in Canada.
