Welcome to the Nanaimo Division

The Nanaimo Division of Family Practice, incorporated on November 22, 2011, represents family physicians, locums, hospitalists, emergency physicians, nurse practitioners and family medicine residents in Nanaimo and on Gabriola Island.

There is no obligation or cost to join. Division funding from the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) is established on a per-member basis. This funding provides support to physicians for their time on working groups and provides infrastructure funds for member-identified priorities and Division events, e.g., continuing medical education events.

Breaking News!

The Nanaimo Division launched Pathways on December 1, 2017, and it is free to members of the Division and their office staff.  Pathways is an online database of Specialists, their sub-specialties, wait times and any pre-consultation work up required.  Family Physicians with sub-specialties, NPs, and Midwives are also listed.  Pathways includes several physician guidelines, decision-making tools and patient resources. 

Key goals of Pathways:

  1. Identify most appropriate Specialists including specific areas of practice
  2. Decrease incidence of re-referrals and wait times.
  3. Provide up-to-date provincial and local resources.
