Who We Are


The Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter of the College of Family Physicians is a provincial, voluntary, not-for-profit organization whose mandate includes undergraduate, post-graduate education, the continuing professional development of family physicians and the maintenance of high standards of medical care and education in family practice.

The Newfoundland and Labrador Chapter is the voice of family medicine in Newfoundland and Labrador and represents more than 710 family physicians who provide patient care for remote, rural, suburban, urban and inner city communities throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

The building and maintenance of high standards of practice, the continuing professional development of our members and improved access to high quality family medicine services for all residents of Newfoundland are at the heart of our organization.

President’s Message Winter 2019


Dr. Nicole Stockley

Dr. Nicole Stockley

We’re only a couple of months in, but 2019 has already been a busy year for the NL College of Family Physicians. In response to resolutions from the AMM in October, our board created a new position within the College – a Government Liaison Officer – which was filled by Dr. Dave Thomas.

Dr. Thomas has already begun meeting with representatives of the provincial government, to improve collaboration between the Department of Health and the College.

In February, St. John’s hosted the National CFPC Chapter Group Meeting. Family medicine leaders from across the country met to discuss various Provincial Chapter successes, as well as concerns common to all of our members.

Meanwhile, the CME Committee is hard at work planning our Annual Celebration of Family Medicine and Family Medicine Conference. Both events are booked for September 27- 29 in St. John’s, NL.

As well, don’t forget that the Awards Committee is seeking nominations for Awards of Excellence, as well as for Family Physician of the Year!
