Postgraduate Program Report
CaRMS 2019: Congratulations on a great CaRMS 2nd iteration match. We filled our remaining positions with many of our top ranked candidates. A sincere thank you to all of the staff that helped with this event, as well as to the faculty and residents that were involved in the file review and interviews.
CFPC Family Medicine Longitudinal Survey: We are working collaboratively with the CFPC and other programs in Canada to survey residents using a national survey tool. The purpose is to study the educational experience and practice intentions of our residents at three different stages: on entry, exit and at 3-5 years after program completion. The exit survey will go out to graduates after the exam and two followup emails will be sent. This survey will help us to make changes to our program. Please encourage residents to complete the survey. All responses are confidential and only aggregate data will be shared, no individual responses will be released.
Triple C update: There are some exciting new changes coming July 1, 2019 to MyFM. Category 1 Enhanced Skills programs will soon have customized field notes mapped to their competencies and entrustable professional activities.
Program Policies: In preparation for the start of the new academic year, please take a moment to review the program policies. They can be found at this link “Policies”.
Residency Awards: You will soon receive an email regarding the awards that are given out at graduation. Please consider putting forward a nomination to acknowledge the excellent work that our residents and faculty are doing.
