Achievement awards

Nova Scotia is home to many innovative and talented physicians. The association’s annual achievement awards are one way that Doctors Nova Scotia (DNS) celebrates the dedication of its members, physicians who go beyond the call of duty, but are rarely acknowledged for their hard work.

Nominations for the 2019 Achievement Awards are now open. The nomination deadline is Friday, Dec. 21, 2018. Nominators must be a member of Doctors Nova Scotia (DNS) in good standing. Self-nominations are ineligible.

Members are eligible for nominations if they are a member of DNS and fall into one of the following membership categories

  • Full members
  • Life members
  • Retired members
  • Members on leave
