Canadian Medical Hall of Fame Laureates are individuals whose outstanding contributions to medicine and the health sciences have led to extraordinary improvements in human health. Their work may be a single meritorious contribution or a lifetime of superior accomplishments. Pioneers in their field, they are role models to young Canadians to pursue careers in health science and a source of inspiration for all Canadians as we celebrate with pride, the important contribution made by Canada to global health.
