What Does the Division Do?

Physicians of the Division of Family Practice work together in our community to:

  • Achieve common health care goals;

  • Strengthen family medicine;

  • Communicate with a stronger collective voice;

  • Develop programs that local GPs think are important; and

  • Improve patient care.

Membership in the division is free of charge to family physicians practicing in our communities in any capacity (clinical practice, walk-in clinics, locum services, specialized obstetrical services, ER, etc.).
