Join family medicine colleagues around the world and celebrate
Family Doctor Day
May 19, 2021
The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) is pleased to align with the World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) to acknowledge the outstanding work of family physicians and the central roles they play in our communities and in our health care system—particularly one year into the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 19th the CFPC recognizes the hard work and dedication of all family physicians across Canada—in every community, big and small—who are on the front lines of care and often the first point of contact for patients.
Over the past year family doctors have bravely adapted to accommodate the needs of their patients during the pandemic by incorporating virtual care visits for patients; lending their expertise to hospitals and long-term care homes; volunteering to support the medical community outside their regular practices; advocating for enhancements to the health care system; and educating people about the importance of following public health recommendations to prevent the community spread of COVID-19. Above all, as front-line workers, family physicians put the needs of their patients and communities first, and for this we salute them.
