Academic Family Medicine
Welcome to the Department of Family Medicine
Our goal is to play a central role in optimizing health for, and with, Saskatchewan communities, families, and individuals. We strive to do this by demonstrating excellence and innovation in service, education, and scholarly activity.
Throughout the Province, department members serve as broad scope generalists working across practice settings, while developing additional skills to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Our team is developing new knowledge and working to improve quality of care, serving as teachers and leaders within the education programs of the College of Medicine.
As a Department, we are all working to identify, acknowledge and address the inequities embedded in the culture and delivery of health care. We continue to learn about our true history, acknowledging past and current injustices and work to build better relationships with First Nation and Métis people as partners in their health.
