We are reaching out to you in hope that you can help us with the CFPC’s Outcomes of Training Project which involves conducting national focus groups with early career family physicians. We are conducting a study to examine preparedness and the factors that influence practice choices of early career family physicians in their first five years. Understanding these factors is critical for the CFPC as we begin to better advocate to governments using evidence to support our family physicians.
