MDPAC Membership

The Medical Psychotherapy Association Canada (MDPAC) is the only non-profit professional association in Canada dedicated to promoting medical psychotherapy in primary care.

Consider joining the MDPAC if you are a:

  • Family physician or specialist, in any province, who provides (or is considering providing) mental health care to patients, and who holds a license in good standing in that province or state.
  • Family physician, in Ontario, who provides mental health care to patients but does not belong to the College of Family Physicians of Canada and needs to be able to report your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario. The MDPAC only accepts Continuing Professional Development that is Psychotherapy or Psychiatry related. Other Medical CPD does not fit the criteria for accreditation.
  • Psychiatrist or psychiatry resident who is interested in developing their psychotherapy skills beyond residency training
  • Medical student or resident in family medicine with an interest in mental health care issues and treatment approaches.
