The Canadian Medical Foundation

The Canadian Medical Foundation was established in 1987 to help Canadian physicians realize their philanthropic goals as well as create healthier communities. CMF has supported a wide-variety of charitable programs over its thirty year history, such as financial aid for medical students, research and programming to address physician well-being, and the co-creation of the Canadian Physician Health Institute (CPHI). Today, CMF is an independent entity dedicated to encouraging volunteerism and promoting philanthropy among health professionals.
