MyPractice is a program developed by the Family Practice Renewal Program, in partnership with the Office of Professional & Educational Development at the Faculty of Medicine, Memorial University, to help family physicians navigate the process of setting up a new family medicine practice in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), move from one practice to another within the province, or transition from active practice to retirement.

Participants of this program may include:

  • family medicine residents making the transition to independent practitioner
  • early-career family physicians
  • out-of-province family physicians looking to establish a practice in NL
  • family physicians transitioning from solo to group practice and vice versa
  • family physicians transitioning from active practice to retirement


By participating in this program, participants will be able to:

  • Outline the steps involved in setting up a new family medicine practice in NL.
  • Utilize resources as needed to support successful completion of the steps involved in setting up a new family medicine practice in NL.
  • Discuss aspects of setting up a new family medicine practice in NL with peer learners and experienced physicians.
