Early Years in Practice Network

About this Network:

The OCFP’s Early Years in Practice (EYP) Network is designed to empower physicians in early career development. This Network provides support to family doctors in their first 10 years of practice by offering practical assistance in addressing challenges that may arise early on in medical practice while they work to develop a lasting career in family medicine.

How it works:

  • Mentees are matched with local physician mentors to build practice management skills, with a focus on strategies for confidence and resilience
  • Mentors and mentees together decide when and how they will meet and interact
  • Mentees get timely one-on-one support, focused education opportunities and ongoing engagement through an online portal (community of practice)
  • Mentors develop as educators through mentoring relationships and engagement within the EYP Network and the wider Networks
  • There is no cost to join
  • The unique format offers valuable opportunities for development and members are eligible to earn up to 15 Mainpro+ credits in this certified program
