Message from the Chair

Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair 

2019 is the 50th Anniversary of the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine (DFCM). Over the coming 12 months we are hosting a number of conferences, workshops, and other events for our faculty, residents, students, alumni and staff.

On April 5th, we will be hosting our DFCM Conference and Walter Rosser Day, named in honour of Dr. Walter Rosser, a leader in global family medicine research and former DFCM Chair. This year’s conference includes exciting workshops, keynote speakers Dr. Risa Freeman, DFCM Vice-Chair of Education and Scholarship, and Dr. Joshua Tepper, President and CEO of North York General Hospital, and the official launch of our 50th Anniversary celebrations.
