  • To emphasize patient dignity, to enhance the patient-physician relationship, and to include patients as partners in their care. 
  • To educate family physicians within a broad scope of practice enabling them to provide care throughout the life cycle. 
  • To help physicians easily access and navigate electronic medical references for practice guidelines, answers to clinical inquiries, and the latest evidence-based medicine. 
  • To educate family physicians in the proper use of consultants, and to coordinate services for integrated patient care. 
  • To fully integrate family physicians into multi-disciplinary health care teams. 
  • To teach physicians how to practice medicine efficiently in preparation for future practice including office management, reimbursement, use of electronic health record and teamwork. 
  • To teach learners how to become teachers, how to best educate their colleagues and patients, and how to give and receive constructive feedback.
  • To prepare physicians to become lifelong learners.
