About the Section of Researchers
The Section of Researchers (SOR) is the Section of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) that addresses research at the CFPC. Members include family physician and associate members of the CFPC.
We are passionate about our research. We are clinicians and researchers who support each other and share our experiences at the CFPC’s Family Medicine Forum, other conferences, and through publications. We learn from each other and from the experts, and aspire to improve the health of our patients through research and innovation in family medicine.
Research is a core component of family medicine training, scholarship, and clinical practice.
Our Section of Researchers’ Blueprint for Family Medicine Research Success outlines our plan to accomplish five key objectives over a five year period.
Ensure that research is a core business of the College
Develop our capability by supporting training, development, career opportunities, and network development
Increase funding for family medicine and primary health care research
Work collaboratively with CFPC Chapters, university departments, practising family doctors, and primary health care providers
Increase our numbers and broaden our perspectives
