Meet the Board
The members of the Nanaimo Division of Family Practice Board of Directors are a group of caring, compassionate and dedicated physicians working collaboratively to foster a strong primary care physician community. They provide their time to lead the organization and represent its physician members.
Our Board members:
- Aim to represent the diversity that exists within our community: Small and large offices; physicians holding full and partial hospital privileges and those who choose not to retain this status; offices providing walk-in clinics and those that don’t; offices using both paper and EMR systems; varying degrees of family practice experience: those recently out of residency, internationally trained, and with profound expertise; perspectives from the full spectrum of a patient’s care journey: primary contact, emergency room and hospitalist physicians.
- Are supported in their professional development as Directors through education, training, peer and administrative support and more.
- Represent an organized local network of front line providers who benefit from their connections with regional and provincial peer leaders.
- Work closely with senior health authority leadership and others who recognize that engaging primary health care is essential to driving health care system change
