Upcoming CFPC Humanities Opportunities

Interested in the health humanities? Two great opportunities to join the conversation on humanities in family medicine are just around the corner!

Family Medicine Forum Call for Abstracts

The call for abstracts for Family Medicine Forum (FMF) 2018 is open between December 15th, 2017 – February 15, 2018. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to this important topic and to advance the health humanities amongst your colleagues. Consider the question of how the humanities can be used in everyday practice as family physicians with patients, in our approach to learning, teaching and research and in our way of being.  FMF 2018 will be held in Toronto, Ontario, from November 14th to 17th, 2018.

Deadline for submissions: February 15, 2018
