The Research and Education Foundation
Since 1994, the Research and Education Foundation (REF) has funded hundreds of awards, grants, and scholarships to family physicians, medical students, and residents to support their learning, continuing education initiatives, and research in family medicine. Awards recognize the care and commitment of those in or considering the family medicine discipline to provide the best patient care to communities across Canada.
