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 (WFDD) 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.

Family Docs Rock!

This annual celebration serves as the culminating event for the ACFP’s signature public awareness campaign – Family Docs Rock! which honours and recognizes the unique and trusted family doctor-patient relationship. For over 10 years, the Family Docs Rock! campaign has garnered more than 200 patient stories of gratitude!
