Has a physician in your rural Alberta community gone above and beyond in providing care?
Has your rural community excelled at attracting and retaining health care professionals?
Has an individual, or team consistently delivered care that’s a cut above?
The Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) invites rural Albertans to submit your application for the 2019 RhPAP Rhapsody Awards.
Since 2002, the RhPAP Awards program has celebrated rural Alberta’s health-care heroes and rural communities with a healthy dose of recognition.
In 2018, we reintroduced our RPAP Awards as the Rhapsody Awards. Rhapsody is a play on our name, a recognition of our renewed and expanded mandate, and a celebration of those individuals, teams, and communities that have made significant civic and health-care contributions in rural and remote Alberta communities.
The Rhapsody Awards provide an opportunity to celebrate those individuals, teams, and communities in rural Alberta that have made significant civic and health-care contributions in rural and remote Alberta communities.
Nominate your healthcare-care heroes in one of three categories:
Rural Alberta Physician of Distinction
Founded in 2002, this Rhapsody Award recognizes the contributions of rural physicians, especially those “unsung heroes,” who provide Alberta rural communities with outstanding patient care and make notable contributions to medical practice and to their communities.
Rural Alberta Community Health Professional Attraction and Retention
Founded in 2007, this Rhapsody Award recognizes a rural Alberta community that has developed innovative and collaborative approaches to successfully attract and retain health-care professional(s) in their area.
Rural Alberta Health-care Heroes (Individual or Team)
New in 2018, these Rhapsody Awards recognize rural Alberta health professionals or teams that demonstrate superior commitment to their patients, health-care team, and community.
Rhapsody Awards: Celebrating rural health excellence in Alberta.
Nomination Deadline is March 31, 2019
Prepare to Celebrate!
RhPAP will sponsor a recognition event in the community of each Rhapsody Award recipient and produce a video feature that shows just how amazing he, she or they are.
