Supporting the Future of Family Medicine

The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) has played an important role in the history of family medicine in Canada. To help serve the future of family medicine the Research and Education Foundation (REF) of the CFPC was established in 1995, as the only charitable organization in Canada dedicated solely to supporting the research and education initiatives carried out by family doctors on behalf of their patients.

Through the generous support of donors, the REF has been able to fund a number of research grants, scholarships and awards recognizing clinicians, teachers, researchers, residents and medical students. These awards have significant impact on patient care in large and small communities across Canada.

Since its inception, the REF has supported hundreds of family doctors across Canada. Each year family doctors are encouraged to apply for research grants and scholarships through the CFPC’s Honours and Awards program.

The future of family medicine will be enhanced through your donation to the Research and Education Foundation.
