Vancouver Division of Family Practice


The Vancouver Division, as the voice of family physicians, is working in collaboration with the Ministry, local Health Authority and community partners to transform our primary care system for the benefit of patients, physicians, and our community at large. We recognize the importance of different levels and kinds of relationships, and that collaboration with our partners is a fundamental component of the primary care system work underway. We are engaged and excited to continue working alongside our partners to bring about successful change in primary care.

Below are Vancouver Division resources, which promote our programming, partnerships and impact. Please forward and share, and help keep the larger healthcare system informed and engaged in our work.
