Preceptor Hall of Fame

The Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians is made up of physicians who go above and beyond their call of duty. Each individual provides a very important component to their community and to the people they serve.

2019 Nominations are Closed.

The MassAFP Preceptor Hall of Fame is designed to recognize a physician who exemplifies the tradition of "Physician as Teacher", but does so generously, at a high level, over an extended period of time.

Preceptor Hall of Fame Criteria:

  • Recognized by peers, residents and students for excellence in teaching, and is compassionate to patients as well as those he/she is teaching.
  • Is directly and effectively involved in community affairs and in activities that enhance the quality of life.
  • Provides a credible and amiable role model as a healer and human being to his/her community, and as a professional in the science and art of medicine to colleagues, other health professionals, and to young physicians in training and medical students.
  • Is a member in good standing of the MassAFP.
  • A life-time achievement meant for someone who has been teaching/leading for an extended period of time.

Massachusetts' Preceptor Hall of Fame will be honored at a luncheon during the Annual Meeting and Spring Refresher held in March.
