BC Family Doctor Day, as proclaimed annually on May 19, is an opportunity to recognize the work of our incredible family physicians who practise in communities across the province.

Family physicians are the foundation of our health care system, handling the majority of health issues that patients face over their lifetime. They are equipped to deliver relationship-based, comprehensive, longitudinal care across all stages of life and are specialists in the whole person.

This year, over 400 British Columbians took the time to nominate their family physician for the My Family Doctor Award and detail the value they place on the doctor-patient relationship. Without exception, the nominations were full of admiration and gratitude, making clear what an incredible difference family physicians and family medicine residents make in the lives of their patients and peers.
