WHO WE ARE
The Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) is the provincial Chapter for the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and was established more than 65 years ago. The ACFP is a member-based, not-for-profit organization representing more than 5,200 family physicians, family medicine residents, and medical students across Alberta.
The ACFP’s vision of advancing health for patients, families, and communities in Alberta is achieved by supporting our members through continuing medical education and professional development, advocacy, leadership, and research that enables them to provide adaptive, high quality health care for their patients and their communities.
The ACFP acts with integrity, respect, and inclusiveness upholding the principles and social responsibility of family medicine. The ACFP represents caring family physician leaders, who ensure comprehensive and integrated care, and value excellence in health care inspired by personal interactions and trusting relationships in the communities they serve. The ACFP seeks to be inclusive and reflective of its members’ views and needs, building awareness of the value of family medicine through communication, engagement, and collaboration.
