Postgraduate Program Report

Registration: July 1st is fast approaching. It is extremely important that trainees followup regarding any requirements affecting their registration status. Emails have been sent by PGME and Medical Affairs to residents with outstanding requirements and due dates. If these deadlines are missed, residents will not be able to start their clinical work.

Triple C update: There are some exciting new changes coming July 1, 2019 to MyFM. Our “Clinical Experience” assessment form will be updated to include all of our entrustable professional activities. This change will allow our residents to receive valuable feedback on their progression in the program. Category 1 Enhanced Skills programs will soon have customized field notes mapped to their competencies and entrustable professional activities.
