Our History

Founded on a Vision for Knowledge Sharing and Professional Camaraderie

In June 1954, the Alberta College of Family Physicians was established by a group of general practitioners who believed in a vision—a vision for knowledge sharing in practical settings and professional camaraderie. The Chapter was known, back then, as The College of General Practice (Alberta Division). A 1969 article written by the past president (1960), M. Dolgoy MD, in Canadian Family Physician documents the first 10 years of the Chapter. Download the full article now or see the original 1969 scans.
