Patrick Charles Murphy, M.D., (September 13, 1868 - March 6, 1925) was a Canadian Senator and physician.

Born in Kinkora, Prince Edward Island, Murphy became a physician and prominent citizen in Tignish. He was a Conservative candidate in the riding of Prince during the 1911 federal election but was defeated by 115 votes. The Conservatives came to power, however, and Murphy was appointed to the Senate in 1912 on the advice of the new prime minister, Robert Borden, and sat in the upper house as a Conservative until his death in 1925.
