Canadian Association of Physicians with Disabilities

The Canadian Association of Physicians with Disabilities (CAPD) is a non-profit support group for physicians living with all types of disabilities, both visible and invisible. Dr. Ashok Muzumdar first established the group in 1999 with the encouragement and support of the CMA. Under the direction of our current president, Dr. Vera Krejcik, we have developed an interactive website that physicians can join free of charge. The website facilitates communication between physicians who have experience practicing medicine with a wide variety of challenges. CAPD would like to be of assistance to physicians who are looking for a community that might be able to share insights on how to cope with such issues. We are asking if you might consider adding our link to your list of resources for physicians.
