The Department of Family Medicine is happy to celebrate the third annual Provincial Doctor's Day on May 1st, 2013.
In 2011 Ontario became the first Canadian jurisdiction to proclaim a day specifically to recognize doctors. May 1st is the birthday of the first female physician in Canada, Dr. Emily Stowe.
Today we ask patients and all Ontarians to thank their doctors for all their work!
Every day Ontario's 26,000 practicing physicians treat over 400,000 patients. Their work is vital to the province. Please join us in recognizing them today.
Doctor's Day was created on the initiative of MPP Reza Moridi.
Happy Doctor's Day!
