Vision, Mission, Values, & Goals

Formed in 2009, the Physician Learning Program's mandate to support physician learning by providing practice data and feedback reports to individual physicians. The PLP has established itself as a leader in processes required to obtain, analyze and present health systems data. We have developed unique and critical partnerships with data custodians and various agencies throughout Alberta and nation-wide, and leverage these collaborations to create unique learning opportunities for physicians.

We operate as one of the Alberta Medical Association’s physician benefit stream programs and are governed by a steering committee with representatives from the AMA, Alberta Health Services, Alberta Health, Alberta Chapter of the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.
