Section of Teachers

The Section of Teachers (SOT) was founded in 1978 to advance the academic discipline of Family Medicine, guided by the educational objectives of the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC), and has grown to over 3,000 members who identify themselves as Family Medicine teachers. The SOT priorities, goals, and activities are governed by the Section of Teachers Council, which strikes several important committees, task forces, and working groups to meet the education needs of the Family Medicine community across the education continuum. 

The SOT supports family medicine teachers across the education continuum by ensuring linkages and developing resources. It also provides guidance to continuing professional development in the transition to practice, teaching, and research. Check out the latest resources:
