Each year the New York State Academy of Family Physicians awards one family physician the title of Family Physician of the Year” for New York State on the basis of outstanding service to patients and community, and devotion to Family Practice. The only other requirement is that nominees be members in good standing of the New York State Academy of Family Physicians(AAFP).
Individuals are encouraged to send letters of nomination to the New York State Academy describing why their family physician should receive the Family Physician of the Year Award. This allows patients to recognize the excellent services provided to them by their family physician.
The physician for New York State will be honored during the NYSAFP Annual Meeting June 24, 2017.
Nomination letters should be received by APRIL 15.
