Young Alumnus/a of the Year

Recognizing passion and dedication

We first presented this award in 2002. We wanted to recognize Dalhousie Medical School graduates who, in the first two decades of their career, have already made significant contributions, either to a medical school or their community. The contribution can be to clinical practice, teaching, research, or public service.

Dr. Paige Moorhouse (MD ’02)
