Success Stories

​Changing Healthcare
Matchmaking between retiring and new-to-practice doctors gives patients access to uninterrupted patient care.
By matching new-to-practice doctors with retiring GPs, and providing them with business coaching and supports to start and build a practice, the Vancouver Division of Family Practice is giving young doctors confidence to take over existing practices from retiring physicians.

Changing Residential Care 
Care for the communities most frail elderly is a unique practice area in need of caring Family Doctors. The VDoFP’s Residential Care Mentorship project is addressing issues facing the sustainability and bringing new GPs into this area of practice. Learn more about this supported program and how we’re ‘Changing Residential Care’ for the better.
