Message from the Chair

Dr. David Tannenbaum, Interim Chair 

If there ever was a question about the role of family medicine and primary care in a pandemic, you have answered it and then some.

Over the last two weeks, we have come together in new and innovative ways: we have moved courses online, developed resources, continue to create new redeployment strategies and assisted our learners. All this while figuring out how to see more patients virtually and manning COVID-19 assessment centres. As family doctors, we are also trusted communicators, as patients and the public look to us for answers in this unprecedented time – many of you have been providing evidence-based information through mainstream and social media.
