We are now accepting new patients.
What can I expect from enrolling with a Family Health Team?
As a new patient, you will have access to a variety of programs, services and care providers within the Family Health Team (FHT). Our FHT is linked with the University of Toronto, Department of Family and Community Medicine and is a training site for medical students and residents. Medical residents have received their medical degree but work directly under the supervision of one of the clinic physicians while they complete their training in family medicine. You may have a resident assigned to you as your physician or be given the choice of seeing a medical resident if your primary healthcare provider is not available.
You may also be assigned to a nurse practitioner (NP) as your primary care provider. A NP is a registered nurse who has received additional university education to increase their ability to treat, diagnose, counsel and educate patients. A nurse practitioner can also provide the answers and information you may need to better manage your health or condition. You may request an appointment with one of our nurse practitioners at any time. You may also be offered an appointment with a nurse practitioner instead of your usual family physician if the physician is not available on the day you require an appointment.
How do I register?
