Langley and MacKillop were honoured Thursday night at the Dr. Robert Baillie Lecture in Sydney for their leadership and support of medical residency training in Cape Breton.

In 1997, the Family Medicine Residency Program began through a teaching partnership with the Dalhousie University School of Medicine.
