Our program exists to make primary care in Canada — and the world — even better than it is.
COVID-19 Community of Practice
We have all had to change the way we work in response to COVID-19. Keeping up with new guidance, responding to the changing environment, and navigating uncertainty has become the new normal. The COVID-19 Community of Practice is a space for family physicians across Ontario to connect and learn from each other.
The DFCM Quality and Innovation Program has led the way nationally in developing quality improvement curriculum for family medicine residents. We also have a QI curriculum for faculty members and teachers, as well as for primary care clinicians. A series of self-learning e-modules form the foundation of our QI curriculum, and we are pleased to offer free access for anyone interested in improving quality in primary care.
Our Quality & Innovation Program has compiled a number of resources to support residents, faculty and primary care professionals to improve quality in practice, including guidance for publishing projects and findings, as well as opportunities to gain knowledge and skill through professional development.
In a learning health system, patients get higher quality, safer, more efficient care, and health care delivery organizations become better places to work. Learn about how we are supporting DFCM family practices to measure and improve care.
The University of Toronto Family Medicine Patient Advisory Committee was established in 2022 and is the first of its kind. DFCM is leading the way in patient engagement within family medicine postgraduate education.
DFCM family doctors are world leaders in teaching, research, and clinical care. Congratulations to the 17 DFCM faculty and residents, plus a project team, who were recognized in the OCFP and CFPC awards this year – more than ever before.
We are pleased to recognize our faculty, staff, and learners for their hard work and successes in clinical care, education, research, leadership, and administration over the past year. Congratulations to all of the 2023 award winners!
