More to come: Curriculum for post-graduate medical education and continuing professional development
The Government of Canada has extended its funding to include the development of a national, bilingual, comprehensive, and competency-based curriculum for post-graduate medical education (PGME) and continuing professional development (CPD). This project will build on the concepts and content of the undergraduate curriculum as well as draw on subject matter experts and have input from those with lived experiences. This new curriculum will be launched in early 2023.
Dr. Abhimanyu Sud, one of our subject matter experts provides an overview of the project.
The AFMC Response to Opioid Crisis project has established 3 working committees:
THE PROJECT OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
Provides high level input into the overall progress and outcomes of the project.
THE UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM EXPERT COMMITTEE
Provides content consultation and advice into the curriculum; Develops a plan of integration into the UGME programs of their respective organizations/university.
THE TRANSITION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Provides advice towards the implementation of the curriculum.
In addition to these committees, the Medical Council of Canada has established the MCQ Assessment Development Committee and OSCE Assessment Development Committee which will be responsible for developing a bank of MCQ’s and OSCE’s relevant to the curriculum for randomized inclusion on the MCC Qualifying Examinations I & II.
