Fons Sips Award 2019

Dear VdGM members,

 

2017 Laureate of the Fons Sips Award: Fons Sips

The inaugural award was awarded to Fons Sips in memoriam at the WONCA Europe Conference in Prague 2017. In 2004, on the occasion of the WONCA Europe Conference in Amsterdam, he used his great inspirational force to gather European young doctors and inspire them to form a group and find themselves a name... it is legendary that he started sketching a ship... and the rest is history.

Fons Sips Outstanding Achievement Award

In 2016, the Fons Sips Outstanding Achievement Award was created in honour of the contributions of one of VdGM’s founding fathers, Alphons Jacobus Ignatius Sips to the establishment of VdGM, the European Young Doctors Movement of WONCA. It was created in order to ensure that the heritage and history of movement was not forgotten and in order to recognise great work and contribution of its members. The celebratory action was tinged with profound sadness as Fons Sips sadly passed away shortly after its creation.
