Entrustable Professional Activities

AFMC is proud to announce the creation of pan-Canadian Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for every Canadian medical school graduate.

The AFMC EPA working group developed the EPAs as a group of core activities required prior to starting residency. These are considered necessary and need to be integrated within the body of required knowledge, skills and behaviours expected at the end of medical school.

The report provides a list of 12 suggested EPAs for UME to facilitate the transition between medical school and residency. These EPAs have been approved in principle by the UME deans and endorsed by the Postgraduate Medical Education (PME) deans, student associations (CFMS and FMEQ) and resident associations (RDoC and FMRQ).
