Dear Members,

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Nelson Mandela

As we all settle in to our regular ‘back to school’ schedules, I’m reminded why I became involved with our College. I was early in my career, and relatively new to Alberta. The ACFP, being the provincial chapter of the College of Family Physicians of Canada represents our community of family physicians and being involved with the ACFP was a way to connect with my colleagues and contribute to the impact our discipline of Family Medicine can have on the delivery of health care in our province.

We are a member organization not distracted by regulatory activity or negotiations, but one that focuses on education and excellence in family practice. No matter what uncertainties or challenges are presented, the ACFP can be counted on to stay the course and will remain true to its mandate.

I look forward to my next few years as President of the ACFP and hope you can trust that the Board and I are here to better serve your needs and support your ability to deliver the best possible care to our patients throughout the province. Please contact me any time at

Dr. Vishal Bhella, President
