David Price, MD, CCFP, FCFP

Professor and Chair, McMaster Department of Family Medicine (DFM)

Dr. David Price is Professor and Chair of the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University, and has been Chief of Family Medicine at Hamilton Health Sciences since 2004.

Dr. Price is the Provincial Primary Care Lead and Chair of the Provincial Expert Advisory Panel on Primary Care.

Doug Oliver, MSc, MD, CCFP

Associate Professor, Family Physician, Medical Director - McMaster Family Practice, DFM

Dr. Oliver is an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University. He joined the Department in 2004 and took on a full-time faculty position in 2007.

Dr. Oliver’s passion for elder care lead him to take on the position as Care of the Elderly Curriculum Coordinator in 2006. This role has allowed him to develop many innovative programs for the Department, including a Long Term Care clinical rotation for residents and a successful annual CME event entitled "Care of the Elderly: Perspectives for Primary Care". His clinical commitment to this patient population continues with weekly nursing home rounds and house-calls to frail elderly patients.

Dr. Oliver’s interest in improving access for patients in primary care resulted in the development and implementation of an “Advanced Access” booking model in the McMaster Family Health Team. This model allows patients better access to their primary care team by having the majority of booking spots available for same day appointments. Dr. Oliver is the Principle Investigator on a research project designed to better understand how and why patients make the choices they do, when calling in to book an appointment with their family doctor.

On the academic front, Dr. Oliver is assisting the Department with several educational leadership roles including Co-Education Coordinator at McMaster Family Practice (2011), Hamilton Site Director and CBRT Education Coordinator (2012-2013) and Behavioural Sciences Co-Coordinator (2013-).
