Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine

The 2020 FAFM Giving Campaign

We are improving the lives of all through research, education, and service in family medicine.
Family medicine saves lives.

Family physicians continue to be at the forefront to provide continuation of care to our patients. Known also as skilled generalists, they train and take on diverse roles that reflect their patient community’s needs, such as emergency care, ob-gyn, palliative care. Family physicians care for patients and their families from the cradle to the grave and connect patients with specialized care. But remain the point of reference for patients and are community leaders.

The Foundation for Advancing Family Medicine (FAFM) is a registered charity. It raises funds to support the CFPC members in providing the best care for everyone in Canada and to lead the advancement of family medicine through philanthropy.


COVID 19 Notice
