Department of Family & Community Medicine

Message from the Chair

Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair 

While many people are taking time to refresh and relax and enjoy the Canadian summer, our newest cohort of residents are just beginning their journey into family medicine. For our residents – as many of our department's more senior members remember - this is a time of excitement, nervousness and anticipation.

I welcome all our new residents to the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM). You are at one of the top family medicine training programs in the world and I hope you take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to you.
