Canada Medical Careers would like to thank family doctors everywhere for all that you do to create healthy communities. In Canada, on May 19, 2022, residents across the country will be reaching out to thank doctors for their commitment to their patients.
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.
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.
Throughout the pandemic, family doctors have bravely adapted to accommodate the needs of their patients 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.
World Family Doctor Day (FDD) - 19th May - was first declared by WONCA in 2010 and it has become a day to highlight the role and contribution of family doctors and primary care teams in healthcare systems around the world.
This celebration is the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the central role of Family Doctors in the delivery of personal, comprehensive and continuing health care for all patients. It's also a chance to celebrate the progress being made in family medicine and the special contributions of primary care teams globally.
Thank you for all that you do!
