Message from the Chair

Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair 

Every day of our lives, in our work as family doctors, brings new opportunities to reflect and learn about ourselves and from each other. Sharing stories is a fundamental part of the work we do.

As family doctors we follow our patients’ stories throughout their lives, and often also across generations, and as such, we become a part of our patients’ stories as well. Whether through interactions with our patients, colleagues or others, a diagnosis that went right or wrong, a teaching moment with a student or resident that taught us more than them, or a leadership challenge, being a family doctor brings new, interesting stories to share every day.
