Call: Nominate for Fons Sips / Rising Star Award

In 2016, the Fons Sips Outstanding Achievement Award was created in honour of the contributions of one of VdGM’s founding fathers, Alphons Jacobus
Ignatius Sips to the establishment of VdGM, the European Young Doctors Movement of WONCA. It was created in order to ensure that the heritage and
history of movement was not forgotten and in order to recognise great work and contribution of its members.

In 2021 WONCA World created the Rising Star Award which aims to recognize a young doctor who has demonstrated a drive for excellence in Health Care. Each of seven Young Doctors Movements designates its candidate for the WONCA World Rising Star Award, the winner is announced at the WONCA World Conference.
