Charles Bridges-Webb Medal
To strengthen our commitment to fostering and supporting career development in academic primary care, AAAPC has created the Bridges-Webb Medal. This award is to recognise AAAPC members who have made and will continue to make international-standard research contributions to academic activities in the primary care environment.
Financial members will be called to nominate potential awardees at least six weeks before the Medal is due to be awarded. The nomination should include a statement outlining how the nominee meets the prize criteria. Nominations by members only.

At most one award will be made annually, selected by a panel of three (at least one member from the executive) appointed by the President.
The Medal may be presented at the AGM or any Ordinary Meeting (face-to-face) or at conferences or other meetings coinciding with said meetings. If the nominees are deemed by the panel not to meet the criteria or be of sufficient standard then they are at liberty not to make an award. The award does not come with any financial support to attend such meetings. If a recipient is not present at the award meeting the President shall make arrangements for the award to be dispatched to them.
