Canadian Medical Association

At the Canadian Medical Association, we know that making real progress for our members starts with listening. We rely on your experiences and insights to set our course – for building better health care and supporting the profession.  

Here’s just some of the work we’ve done this past year:

Standing up for physician health

We’re helping create a healthy and vibrant profession by tackling the individual and system issues that contribute to physician burnout. 
 

Taking the lead

A physician leader has joined our senior team to champion physician wellness. We're funding projects across Canada, in collaboration with MD Financial Management and Scotiabank, to build supports for physicians.

Finding the gaps

We're identifying where gaps exist by launching a comprehensive analysis  of physician wellness resources and supports, with a plan to consolidate and share these resources, research and innovations.

Mobilizing wellness leaders

This fall, we're hosting a two-day event - the Canadian Conference on Physician Health - where participants will gain evidence-based skills and strategies they can take back to their practice.

Supporting the profession

We’re listening to members and taking action on the issues that matter to you.

 

Listening to you

Our regional member forums  in Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Edmonton and online generated hundreds of ideas on physician wellness and the country's physician workforce. What we learned from these consultations is guiding our work.

Supporting you in your practice

We continue to invest in physician-led innovation and excellence through advanced tools, clinical resources, leadership courses, evidence-based knowledge and other resources available to CMA members.

Celebrating you

Physicians are driven by passion and compassion. Throughout the year we showcase members who go above and beyond to build a stronger health care system.

Transforming health

We’re leveraging your experience and knowledge to drive change in health and health care. 

Scaling up virtual care

We've joined forces with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada to innovate and support better access to virtual care.

Creating a national conversation

Our annual Health Summit  in August provides a space to learn about new innovations, share best practices and actively engage on the policy issues that lead to better care.

Making health matter 

We're putting health back on the agenda during the 2019 federal election, working with physicians and their patients to advance issues that matter.
