National Physician's Day

On National Physicians’ Day, we celebrated physicians and physicians-in-training, and reflected on the value of the work they do. The Canadian Medical Association thanks all its members for their commitment to their patients. Together, we can continue to build a vibrant profession and a healthy population.
