Department of Family Medicine

The McGill Family Medicine Department is home to an exceptional community of primary health care professionals, researchers, students and support staff, whose mission is to contribute to the health of the population and the sustainability of the healthcare system in Quebec as well as in Canada and internationally, by training residents, medical students and other health care professionals, promoting innovation in practice, developing research and scholarly activity, promoting curriculum innovation and education research, and engaging in international and global health activities.


This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Department of Family Medicine. From a handful of graduates some 40 years ago, Family Medicine is now the biggest department within the Faculty of Medicine. To celebrate our 40th anniversary, the McGill Family Medicine Department will host a Homecoming Gala, on the evening of Thursday, May 5th, 2016, the McGill Primary Care Policy Symposium on Friday, May 6th, 2016 and the McGill Complementary Health Symposium on Friday, June 3rd, 2016.
