Join family medicine colleagues around the world and celebrate
Family Doctor Day
May 19, 2020
The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) is proud to celebrate Family Doctor Day to acknowledge the outstanding work of family physicians and the central role they play in our communities and in our health care system—particularly this year through the COVID-19 pandemic.
This May 19th the CFPC salutes the hard work and dedication of all family physicians across Canada—from urban centres to rural and remote settings—who are on the front lines of care and often the first point of contact for patients. They are helping patients with early detection and navigating choices for care; adapting their practices to enhance virtual patient care visits; working in emergency rooms; and educating people about the importance of following public health recommendations to prevent community spread of the disease.
