Message from the Chair
Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair
“Advancing Family Medicine Globally through Scholarship, Social Responsibility and Strategic Partnerships”.
This is the headline goal of the current strategic plan of the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM). When I arrived in Canada, three years ago, it was very clear that this department had a strong ongoing commitment to health equity and social accountability. This is not just included in our headline goal, but is an active component of the education and research and quality improvement work of many of our faculty, and it is a defining feature of the primary care services provided by each of our Family Medicine Teaching Units and our community teaching sites.
Keep up with the latest in medical education at the Department of Family and Community Medicine! The DFCM email newsletter is sent out monthly with news, events and updates for academic healthcare professionals. View some of our past issues, and see what it's all about.
