Each Family Physician of the Year is chosen by other Chapter members because they exemplify the four principles of family medicine: they are community-based and skilled clinicians who recognize the central importance of the doctor–patient relationship and act as a resource to a practice population. In addition, they are known for providing their patients with exceptional care, making meaningful contributions to the health and well-being of their communities, and dedicating themselves as researchers and as educators of future family doctors.
