Family Medicine Forum (FMF)

The College of Family Physicians of Canada’s 12th Annual Family Doctor Week in Canada took place November 9-14, coinciding with the annual Family Medicine Forum, November 11-14, in Toronto, Ontario. Through Family Doctor Week in Canada 2015, the CFPC proudly acknowledged the outstanding contributions of Canadian family doctors for their dedication to their patients and the delivery of high-quality health care. Family Medicine colleagues and the public were asked to follow @FamPhysCan and tweet using the hashtag #LoveMyFamilyDoc to join in this year's celebration, support fellow family physicians, and to share why they love their family doc. 

Family Medicine Forum, or FMF, is Canada’s largest and most comprehensive annual conference for family physicians. Members of the Department of Family Medicine and the Centre for Studies in Family Medicine participated in the conference with presentations, workshops and posters that showcased their research.
