A Sundre doctor has been named one of the top 10 family doctors of Canada for 2013 by the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

Dr. Hal Irvine, of Sundre, made the list that included doctors from each of the 10 provinces.

Doctors were chosen for their outstanding patient care, significant contributions to the health and well-being of their communities, and their commitment to family medicine, teaching and research.

Recipients are nominated by their colleagues, community leaders and the College of Family Physicians’ 10 provincial chapters.

The announcement was made on Monday and the awards are presented as part of Family Doctor Week in Canada, which runs Nov. 4 to 9.

Doctors will receive their awards during a ceremony on Nov. 5 at the college’s annual Family Medicine Forum, which is being held in Vancouver this year.

The College of Family Physicians has over 30,000 members across Canada and is the organization responsible for standards in training, certification, lifelong education and advocating on behalf of family doctors and the specialty of family medicine.
