Dear Member:

Family Physicians are an essential part of Alberta’s health care system therefore your practice perspective and expertise are constantly being sought after by many stakeholders.

Engaged Leadership Secretariat
The Engaged Leadership Secretariat was struck to support the development of an engagement process and leadership skill development with the family physician perspective at the forefront. The Secretariat is comprised of members from the ACFP, AMA Sections of General Practice/Rural Medicine, AHS and the Departments of Family Medicine from the Universities of Alberta and Calgary.

Immediate priorities include:

  1. Engaging family physicians with a desire and interest to collaborate and influence many layers and levels of change.
  2. Creating a community of family physicians, interested in engaging with stakeholders through a collaborative and well thought out process with the family physician perspective as the focus.
  3. Developing and enhancing family physician leadership skills through continuing professional development (CPD) activities.

In order to guide our work, and move forward, we need to hear from you as soon as possible.
