Inspiring Physicians Project

The College is proud to highlight our Inspiring Physicians project which recognises and highlights the contributions of clinicians today across the world and how they have made an impact on both patients and colleagues alike. Nominations for the project were submitted by our Fellows and Members and our top ten physicians for 2018 and 2019 can be viewed online along with the statements from those who have proposed them.
