A fond farewell from the Chair

How did five years pass so quickly! Coming to Ottawa has been a wonderful adventure. I have met so many outstanding physicians and academics! From the very first frigid days in January 2014, I have marvelled at our vibrant and wonderful Department and Faculty.  
This month, we also say goodbye to Dr. Deidre Young, who is re-locating to Calgary with her family. Dr. Michael Malek will take over as Civic PG Unit Program Director.
Congratulations, Graduates!

Resources for providing antenatal care

Providing comprehensive care in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy is standard for many family doctors, but small volumes of patients may limit our comfort with this important area. Dr. Bill Ehman, chair of the CFPC’s Maternity and Newborn Care Program Committee , covers topics such as screening for aneuploidy, estimating due date, and understanding the roles of ASA and vaginal progesterone in pregnancy in a new webinar, " Contemporary Topics in Antenatal Care ". The whole program is also available at cfpc.ca/maternityelearning
