2011 – New Brunswick
Dr Michel Landry is nominated by his colleagues and medical residents for his outstanding commitment to family medicine and unwavering dedication to teaching family medicine.
A graduate of the University of Sherbrooke, Dr Landry received his Certification in family medicine from the College of Family Physicians of Canada in 1987 and was awarded Fellowship in 2002.
Currently, Dr Landry maintains his own family practice as part of the Unité de médecine familiale teaching clinic in Dieppe, New Brunswick, and is involved in the care of nursing home patients at the Villa du Repos in Moncton.
Since 1998, Dr Landry has directed the New Brunswick Francophone Family Medicine Training Program and the University of Sherbrooke Family Medicine Unit. During his tenure he has worked to see many rotations achieve accreditation from the University of Sherbrooke and the Collége des médecins du Québec in all francophone regions of New Brunswick. His efforts have enabled students and residents to complete their entire two‐year family medicine residency training in New Brunswick.
Dr Landry has served many years with the New Brunswick Medical Society. Recently, he undertook a research project on the relationship between the training, recruitment, and retention of physicians, and established a methadone program for a First Nations Health Clinic, where he continues to work with patients with addictions.
In his spare time, Dr Landry enjoys playing both golf and tennis and watching movies. He and his wife, Judy (a registered nurse who works part‐time at his clinic), enjoy travelling to visit their daughters Kerri and Crystal.
