Serving Our Membership

ACFP is involved in various initiatives supporting and advocating for family medicine and family physicians that help make Alberta the best place to practice comprehensive medicine in Canada.

Annual Scientific Assembly

In April of 1955, the ACFP hosted its first Sectional Meeting in Red Deer, Alberta. The meeting was later renamed the Annual Scientific Assembly, and in 1959 found a permanent home in Banff, Alberta. Now attracting upwards of 300+ registrants, mainly from Alberta and across Canada, the ASA is recognized as Alberta’s premier conference for family physicians. The program focuses on offering highly relevant and practical clinical topics, with valuable take-away learning pearls.

Student Initiatives

The College has had a long history collaborating with our universities to ensure students have every opportunity to understand and explore family medicine as a career.

Care for Seniors

The ACFP is proud to have a dedicated group of member physicians who have a special interest in providing care for the elderly patient with complex needs.

Tools for Practice

The ACFP is a proud sponsor of Tools for Practice. Tools for Practice are biweekly articles that summarize medical evidence on a clinical question. Led  and coordinated by Dr. G. Michael (Mike) Allan, Associate Professor in the University of Alberta Department of Family Medicine.

Tools for Practice is a large component of the ACFP’s Evidence and CPD Program which also includes Roadshows and the PEIP Conference.
