    Awards bestowed on Dr. Alnoor Abdulla

     

    Dr. Alnoor Abdulla is not one to blow his own horn. But when we saw the incredible list of distinctions that he has received in his career, we felt the need to tell all.

     

    It all started in Nairobi, Kenya when the young man, not yet out of his teens, won ‘Best Individual Exhibit’ at the National Students' Science Congress. Shortly thereafter, at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, he was awarded the Alexander Galloway Prize in Anatomy with First Place (Distinction) in Biochemistry. The following year, the same institution gave him the May & Baker Prize in Pharmacology, First Place (Distinction).

    A mere year after that, the doctor was on the west coast of Canada where he was given the Vancouver Foundation Award for Excellence in Physical Diagnosis at the University of British Columbia (UBC). This was followed by the University granting him a Bursary.

     

    Two years later, UBC handed him the Tommy Diespecker Memorial Medical Scholarship Award in Clinical Medicine. The good doctor graduated UBC with the CIBA - Geigy Graduating Class Prize in Psychiatry. Five years later the same institution named him Outstanding Resident with the Ken Evelyn Award.

    Months later, Dr. Abdulla received an International Scholarship Award from the Aga Khan Foundation, for Clinical Research in Nuclear Cardiology.

     

    He was repeatedly bestowed the honour of the Physician's Recognition Award, CME by the American Medical Association in 1983, 1986, 1992, 1996, 1999, 2002 and 2006.

     

    He has been named in the Who’s Who (1983, California) and (1990, Sudbury).

     

    In 1983 His Highness Prince Aga Khan presented Dr. Abdulla the Silver Jubilee Service Medal for services rendered to the community.

     

    A Clinical Traineeship Award from the Royal College Physicians & Surgeons of Canada came in 1985.

     

    He was recognized by the Aga Khan Council for Canada in 1990 with the Canadian Ismaili High Achievers Award for Professional Development.

     

    Contributions to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario netted Dr. Abdulla the Outstanding Service Award in 1992.

     

     

     

    The famed Cardiologist has also had an award created in his name. In 1992 the Dr. Abdulla Award was born. The honour is presented yearly to deserving person(s) who best exemplify the goals of the Heart & Stroke Foundation, Sudbury Chapter.

     

    The Commemorative Medal, Service to Canada, was put into Dr. Abdulla’s hands in 1993 by the Governor General of Canada on the 125th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

     

    In 1995, the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada presented him with the Detweiler Clinical Traineeship Award.

     

    The Aga Khan University also bestowed upon the Doctor the 1995 Poster Presentation Award at their Second Annual National Symposium, the 1996 Outstanding Speaker Award, and in 1998, the Heart of Cardiology Award.

     

    In 2000, Dr. Abdulla was recognized as one of the Founding Members of the Cardiac Care Network of Ontario.

     

    In 2012, he received the Nehru Humanitarian Award from UBC / Goel family Foundation.

     

    The dust hasn’t settled on Dr. Abdulla’s collection of trophies. There is no doubt that there will be many more honours, accolades and awards, as he continues make a difference in the field of Cardiology.
