Calgary Curriculum Information
TRIPLE C CURRICULUM: Structure
The CanMEDS-FM framework provides a way of organizing curriculum information and competencies to ensure patient care is improved while postgraduate training program needs are met during FM postgraduate education. This framework is adapted from JR Frank’s work with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, 'The CanMEDS 2005 competency framework. Better standards. Better physicians. Better Care', and provides the basis for the design and accreditation of FM residency programs.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada 2009 Curriculum Review document explains how the four principles of Family Medicine complement the seven roles or expected competencies of the Canadian Family Physician:
- Family Medicine Expert
- Health Advocate
This framework will be seen as you read through the University of Calgary FM curriculum documents.
CURRICULUM DELIVERY: Schedule
All Programs are 2 years in length, and are organized into 13 blocks per year. Learning experiences within each block provide you with opportunities to acquire our Family Medicine competencies and Entrustable Professional Activities (see FM Calgary - Entrustable Professional Activities). Additional information on rotation definitions and requirements can be found HERE.
