Competency-Based Medical Education

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada has embarked upon an initiative to introduce competency based medical education (CBME) in Canadian postgraduate specialty training.This initiative, called Competence by Design, uses time as a framework rather than the basis for progression. Residency programs are broken down into stages, with each stage having a series of milestones based on required competencies. 

For further information on CBME, please visit the Faculty of Medicine's CBME website.
