The Department of Family and Community Medicine at Providence Health Care has a long and rich history of patient care, community service, Family Medicine Resident education, research, and advocacy. With approximately 300 members, it is the natural Departmental locus for family doctors practicing in downtown and East Vancouver. It has cultivated close linkages with other Vancouver Family Practice Departments, and with the Vancouver Coastal Health Region, and has been the stimulus or vehicle for many innovations in health care delivery in hospital, the community, and residential care.
The longevity and successes of our Department are attributable to the ongoing commitment of our individual members, and their resolve to maintain a strong family practice culture in a large and often specialty-focused urban environment.
