A Message from Postgraduate Leadership
On behalf of Lindsay Jantzie, Jacqueline Hui, Brendan Miles and Keith Wycliffe-Jones.
Dear University of Calgary Family Medicine FMeCAP Pilot Preceptors, Residents, Coordinators, and Directors,
On behalf of Postgraduate Family Medicine, we are excited and pleased to introduce to you the Family Medicine electronic Curriculum and Assessment Platform (FMeCAP) pilot. This system has been strongly desired for many years by those involved in residency training. Through collaboration with the vendor Elentra, the platform has finally become a reality. It's exciting to see several thousands of hours of brainstorming and planning come to fruition with an electronic environment that supports the collection, review, and reporting of assessment information, as well as the organization, delivery, and evaluation of curriculum for all three Postgraduate Family Medicine Programs (Calgary, Rural, and Enhanced Skills).
A move to one system will make our work lives easier, our processes more efficient, and will eliminate the need for and redundancy of several different systems and tools. FMeCAP will also promote learner-centeredness, self-reflection, and real-time tracking of resident progress in a user-friendly interface.
As Preceptors, Residents, Coordinators, and Directors using the system during the pilot phase of the project, we look forward to working collaboratively with you in 2020-2021 to refine the functionality and integration of FMeCAP to meet the needs of each of our Programs. You are encouraged to provide regular feedback about the platform, as well as participate in regularly offered professional development sessions which will be geared to utilize the system to its maximum potential.
This is a very exciting time for the Postgraduate Family Medicine Programs.
Thank you for coming on this journey with us.
