Known around the world as the “Father of Family Medicine”, Ian McWhinney was born in England in 1926 into a medical family. In 1968, at the age of 42, he immigrated to Canada to start the country’s first Department of Family Medicine, located at the University of Western Ontario. This memoir shows the evolution of Dr. McWhinney’s ideas on the role of the family doctor, the nature of the doctor-patient relationship, and the meaning of humanity and goodness.
