Celebrate World Family Doctor Day with the ACFP – May 19

The Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) is proud to support the global recognition of Family Doctors on May 19th. First declared by WONCA (World Organization of Family Doctors) in 2010, World Family Doctor Day has become a day to acknowledge the central role and contribution of family doctors in the delivery of personal, comprehensive, and continuing health care for all patients.

While this day of formal recognition comes one day each year, any day and every day can be used to applaud the value of family physicians in our lives.

Family Docs Rock!

A family doctor-patient relationship is often one of the most trusted in health care. It is a relationship that both the doctor and patient have been nurturing since a patient’s first visit—and often the patient’s first encounter with the health care system.

10 Years of Sharing Your Stories

To celebrate and honour this unique bond, the Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) created its signature public awareness campaign  – Family Docs Rock! From Fort McMurray to Longview —we have received many heart-warming stories and videos over the years. 

If you know a family doctor who has gone that extra mile, who has looked after you, your son, daughter, and/or your parents, and has done it exceptionally well, we want to add your story to our collection!

As a thank you for your submission, we’ll send you and your doctor one of our highly coveted Family Docs Rock t-shirts.
