The only requirement is that nominees be members in good standing of the Alaska Academy of Family Physicians. By nominating a doctor, patients are able to recognize the services provided to them by their family physician.

Nominations are due by May 20. The winning physician will be honored during the academy's annual Scientific Assembly June 14 through 17 in Seward.
