Postgraduate Program Report

The CFPC Accreditation visit is rapidly approaching! The Postgraduate team’s preparation for this visit is well underway. Ms. Kelsey Klages and Dr. Jamie Wickett will be presenting at the April 24 Faculty Development session. The session entitled “Keep Calm and Accredit On" will provide faculty with an understanding of the new accreditation standards and process and will review key accreditation standards that may be discussed with the accreditation team.

We would like to take this opportunity to start reviewing some of the new accreditation standards. Listed in bold below is one of the requirements for Standard 7 as well as the corresponding indicators for that requirement. Please take a moment to review the indicators and reflect on how these are manifested in your work as a teacher.

Element 7.1: Teachers are assessed, recognized, and supported in their development as positive role models for residents in the residency program.

  • 1.2.1: Teachers exercise the dual responsibility of providing quality, ethical patient care; and excellent supervision and teaching.
  • 1.2.2: Teachers contribute to academic activities of the residency program and institution, which may include, but are not limited to lectures, workshops, examination preparation, and internal reviews.
  • 1.2.3: Teachers are supported and recognized for their contributions outside the residency program, which may include, but are not limited to peer reviews, medical licensing authorities, exam boards, specialty committees, accreditation committees, and government medical advisory boards.
  • 1.2.4: Teachers contribute to scholarship on an ongoing basis.
