Small Group Learning

About the program

Join us for a series of small group learning sessions where family physicians are encouraged to celebrate successes and explore the challenges they experience practicing family medicine.  Sign up for a group.

How does small group learning work?

Participants will engage in an open discussion where they are invited to share the difficulties they are facing in their practice, in areas related to mental health, substance use disorders and chronic pain. These will be closed groups, with a maximum of ten participants and will be co-facilitated by two Peer Guides who will lead the discussion. Groups will run for one year a meet once every four to six weeks for 1.5 hours.
