Dauphin, Canada

A Dauphin doctor has been recognized for his work.

Dr. Scott Kish, site lead for the Parkland’s Family Medicine Unit, won the 2018 Manitoba College of Family Physicians award for Family Physician of the Year.

Dr. Kish explains what the award means to him:

“It’s an honour, for sure, and a surprise as well because I wasn’t aware that I was nominated. I think the recognition of who’s gone before me with this, in terms of our residency program, Dr. Mike Penrose has won this award and Dr. David O’Hagan has as well, and just knowing them personally and knowing what their practices have been like and the standard of care they provide; I think that makes this even more meaningful for me.”

Dr. Kish will receive the award in April at the Annual Scientific Assembly in Winnipeg.
