FFYFP Committee

Here to Support Our Peers Entering Practice

The First Five Years in Family Practice (FFYFP) Committee supports family physicians in their first five years of practice and family medicine residents’ transition into practice. The Committee acts as a resource to the ACFP for those in the early stages of their career. The Alberta College of Family Physicians (ACFP) supports new family physicians through the First Five Years of Family Practice (FFYFP) Committee. Consisting of family physician members from various communities throughout Alberta, the FFYFP Committee aims to specifically focus on areas that are important to family physicians in their first five years of practice. Our mandates include:

  • To raise awareness of the ACFP’s programs, products, and services amongst family physicians in their first five years of practice
  • To provide a leadership opportunity for family physicians in their first five years of practice
  • To develop programs and/or resources targeting the needs of family physicians in their first five years of practice
  • To periodically survey family physicians in the first five years of practice to determine issues important to them
  • To regularly communicate with family physicians in their first five years of practice via website, email, Facebook page, Twitter, and other media as required
  • Through the ACFP FFYFP representative, bring issues affecting family physicians in their first five years of practice to the attention of the national Membership Advisory Committee (MAC) and the CFPC
  • To serve as a resource for the ACFP Board Representative to CFPC’s MAC, and other areas within the CFPC, whenever the opinions of family physicians in their early years in practice are sought
