Research Showcase


The ACFP proudly hosts the Research Showcase  as apart of our annual Family Medicine Summit (Summit). This unique research event has become one of the most valued opportunities in Alberta for family medicine and primary care researchers to present and share their research projects. We’re very privileged to have some of the best researchers in Alberta in attendance at this event. Summit registrants are encouraged to attend the Research Workshops to hear the excellent oral presentations that are made, and celebrate and interact with our research community while viewing the posters on display in the evening at the conference reception. The Research Showcase is solely a forum for presentation of research. Marketing of products, services or software are not allowed at the Showcase.


The ACFP would like to thank all who particpated in the 2023 Research Showcase whether it be as an abstract submitter, abstract reviewer, adjudicator, or attendee! Both oral presentations and poster displays will be available for Summit Family Medicine Summit (Summit) registrants on the attendee hub until June 2023!

Be sure to check out this year’s research award recipients in both the oral presentation and poster display categories here!
