Welcome to the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP)!

We are a provincial, professional voluntary organization, representing more than 4,500 family physicians in Alberta. Established 60 years ago, the ACFP strives for excellence in family practice through advocacy, continuing professional development, and primary care research.

How Our Website Can Help You

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.

  • Find a Family Physician. Our Find a Family Physician page includes links to the primary family physician databases in Alberta.
  • Learn What a Medical Home means. Our Patient’s Medical Home page provides resources that explain the College of Family Physicians of Canada’s Vision for Canada.
  • Helpful Resources. Our Library page houses many helpful resources for physicians and patients.
  • Say thank you. Our Family Docs Rock page helps patients acknowledge their relationship with their doctors by showcasing how great they are.  Take a moment to visit the page or send us why your family doc rock at myfamilydocrocks@acfp.ca.
