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 teaching and/or research contributions to academic activities in the primary care environment.

Nominations for 2022 are now closed

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.

Judging Criteria

  • Nominee must be a current financial member of AAAPC
  • Significant contribution to the academic environment of primary care teaching and/or research
  • International contribution and/or recognition
  • Likelihood that they will continue in this environment and make further contributions

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.
