Faculty of Medicine
Department of Family and Community Medicine
The Department of Family and Community Medicine is recognized internationally for its clinical, educational and research excellence.
The DCFM is the largest academic Family Medicine program in the country, with 1,000 faculty members located across multiple hospital sites and community practices. Many of these faculty members are our own alumni. And the Department continues to grow – expanding to address Canada’s chronic shortage of Family Physicians.
The DFCM is also advancing the delivery of primary care – leading the way in the development and evaluation of innovative and interprofessional models of care. At the same time, DFCM researchers are constantly generating new knowledge to improve quality of care and finding better ways to help physicians translate that knowledge into effective clinical practice.
