Who should take this program?

This workshop is meant for trained physicians (including International Medical Graduates) that are working in Canada under the supervision of another medical professional and are eligible to participate in certification examinations. By successfully completing the CFPC Exam, trained physicians receive their Certification in Family Medicine, and can use the designation CCFP. 

As the professional home for Ontario’s 15,000+ family physicians, the OCFP supports and advocates for the role of the family physician as the foundation of an effective health system. More comprehensive-care family physicians are needed to serve populations across the province. The CFPC Exam Orientation Workshop is one way the OCFP is helping to increase the number of practicing family physicians in Ontario.
