Dr. David Price is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University since 2006, was Chief of Family Medicine at Hamilton Health Sciences from 2004-2018.
While most of his career has been as a comprehensive family physician in major urban centres (including Vancouver and Hamilton), he is proud of the fact that he gained much clinical experience in a number of rural and northern communities.
Through his leadership roles at the University and Hospital, and his involvement with local, regional and provincial government bodies where he acts as a consultant and advisor, he has developed expertise in primary care reform and health care policy development. As the Chair of the Provincial (Ontario) Expert Advisory Panel on Primary Care (2013-2014) he was instrumental in helping produce “Patient Care Groups: A new model of population based primary health care for Ontario” (“Price Report”). Locally, he was the founding director of the Maternity Centre of Hamilton; a multidisciplinary centre that cares for prenatal and intrapartum patients.
Dr. Price was also instrumental in helping to create the academic Family Health Team at McMaster University, an interprofessional team, currently serving over 35,000 patients in the Hamilton area. He was a key player in the development of the David Braley Health Sciences Centre, a six-story, 185,000 sq. ft. home for Family Medicine and Hamilton Public Health in the downtown core.
Dr. Price’s recent piece in Centre for Effective Practice 2016-17 Yearbook (Page 4) focuses on the development of meaningful resources and interventions to support primary care providers in their practices.
