The Heart of Family Medicine
Celebrating Trusted Relationships Through Stories
The Alberta College of Family Physicians created the Heart of Family Medicine campaign to celebrate the trusted relationships between patients and family physicians and does so through a collection of stories from patients and physicians. It showcases the outstanding contributions made by family doctors to improve the health and well-being of their patients, their communities, and Alberta as a whole.
Family medicine is one of the unique medical specialties where family doctors can provide care to you at every life stage from the time you are born, to the birth of your kids, to helping you care for your parents. Family doctors are with you every step of the way, standing by your side.
We’ve collected a number of stories over the years through our popular Family Docs Rock patient campaign and are happy to find a true home for them at the Heart of Family Medicine.
At the heart of family medicine are the relationships between family physicians and their patients. Our videos share those two perspectives through special members moments and poignant patient stories.
Our podcasts share stories from the heart. Learn how our family doctors came to be—their journeys, what drives them, their passions while they sit down to chat with our host, ACFP Executive Director Terri Potter.
