Dr. Peter N. McCracken Scholarship (Awarded by the University of Alberta)

Dr. Peter N. McCracken has been recognized for many accomplishments throughout his distinguished career. His greatest passion was always the well-being of his patients. His dedication left a lasting impression on patients, their families, staff and colleagues, as well as learners of all disciplines. Second only to his commitment to his patients, was his passion for teaching. He demonstrated great versatility in sharing his knowledge to clinicians of all disciplines. Throughout his many years of practice in Edmonton, he gave much to the advancement of geriatric medicine both in his clinical work and in research, especially in the area of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. It is thanks in large part to his leadership in geriatric medicine that seniors in our province have access to the leading edge care that they do today.

The Dr. Peter N. McCracken scholarship is awarded annually to a student in Medicine or a graduate student in another health discipline, with a special interest in geriatrics. Selection will be based on academic achievement and the evaluation of the individual as a role model for excellence in clinical care and research.
