Celebrate Family Doctor Week in Canada!

November 6-11 is Family Doctor Week in Canada!

Help us celebrate family doctors in Alberta and Canada by sharing your story.

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) proudly acknowledges the outstanding contributions of Canada’s family doctors and the highly valued relationships they have with their patients and the communities they serve. Family Doctor Week in Canada will be celebrated from November 6-11, 2017 which coincides with the annual Family Medicine Forum in Montréal, Québec.

This special week also provides an opportunity for governments, health care organizations, colleagues, and the public to acknowledge the outstanding contributions made by family doctors to improve the health and well-being of their patients.

The CFPC invites you to join in this year’s celebration and support your fellow family physicians during Family Doctor Week in Canada from November 6–11.

ACFP Celebrates Family Doctor Week With Your Stories!

A family doctor-patient relationship is often times one of the most trusted in health care. It is a relationship that both the doctor and patient have been nurturing since a patient’s first visit—and often the patient’s first encounter with the health care system. We know patients count on family doctors and value these relationships.
