Our mission is to provide practicing family physicians with the means to maintain and enhance their professional knowledge and competence and to integrate that knowledge into their practices through the development, dissemination and evaluation of educational approaches and materials that are learner-centred and practice based, using evidence-based educational principles.

To help us fulfill this mission, we continue to create and maintain liaisons with external organizations interested in continuing medical education, in order to further the goals and objectives of The Foundation. Overall education and educational approaches have been, and will continue to be, developed by family physicians.
