Are you thinking about setting up a new family medicine practice in Newfoundland & Labrador? Or considering a move from one practice to another?

This experience can be one of the most rewarding events in the career of a family physician. At the same time, the process of establishing a new practice can be complex and challenging.

Our easy-to-use Mentor Matching Service can connect you with an experienced family physician who can provide up to 25 hours of guidance and support as you navigate the process of establishing your practice. This support and guidance can help to enhance your knowledge about and confidence in setting up a new family medicine practice, and increase your awareness of existing/relevant local resources.
