December 7, 2016

(December 7, 2016, Mississauga, ON) The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) announced today the resignation of Dr Jamie Meuser from his position as Executive Director, Professional Development and Practice Support (PDPS) effective June 2017.

Since joining the College in 2011, Dr Meuser has led significant growth and change in the professional development portfolio of the College while maintaining involvement with his Toronto-based clinical work.

“On behalf of the CFPC’s Executive Team and Board of Directors, I want to thank Jamie for his tremendous work and expertise that he has dedicated to the CFPC over the last five years,” says Francine Lemire, MD CM, CCFP, FCFP, CAE. “His leadership was fundamental to the successful launch of Mainpro+®, the enhancement of continuing professional development programs and partnerships, and the important work of the College on priority issues including the Healthcare Pharmaceutical Industry Task Force and guidance documents for family physicians on the revised regulations around the use of medical marijuana. We are very grateful for his outstanding contributions that have helped advance the College in support of all family physicians in Canada. We wish him all the best in his clinical practice and every personal happiness.”

Dr Meuser guided the PDPS division through an organizational restructuring and merged with a dynamic staff in two departments: Continuing Professional Development and Programs and Practice Support. Both are dedicated to enhancing the learning and clinical support requirements of College members and will continue to flourish in the years ahead. In addition to his successes within the organization, Dr Meuser also strengthened external partnerships and resources with committees, project task forces and partner health care organizations.

“It has been a tremendous opportunity to work with the CFPC and to be a part of some exciting enhancements to continuing professional development programs and services that support family doctors – and ultimately our patients - across the country,” adds Jamie Meuser, MD, CCFP, FCFP. “I would like to acknowledge the PDPS staff team, the CFPC Board, Executive Team as well as the committees, academic representatives, program partners and colleagues with whom I have worked during my time here. I am grateful for the support provided to me and am proud of our accomplishments. My sincere thanks to all.”

Dr Meuser will continue in his full role as Executive Director until he completes his time with the College in June 2017. An executive search process will begin in the very near future to select his replacement.

The CFPC represents more than 35,000 members across the country. It is the professional organization responsible for establishing standards for the training and certification of family physicians. The CFPC reviews and accredits continuing professional development programs and materials that enable family physicians to meet certification and licencing requirements and lifelong learning interests. It also accredits postgraduate family medicine training in Canada’s 17 medical schools. The College provides quality services, supports family medicine teaching and research, and advocates on behalf of family physicians and the specialty of family medicine.
