The Scope of Training for Family Medicine Residency

The goal of residency training is to produce family physicians who are competent to practice comprehensive continuing care in order to meet the needs of patients, families and communities.  Programs must provide training in the full scope of family medicine and, must assess residents on an ongoing basis to ensure that competencies are acquired and educational goals are met. Documents have been produced by the Working Group on Curriculum Review to articulate the competencies required for comprehensive practice.


Triple C competency-based curriculum. Report of the Working Group on Postgraduate Curriculum Review – Part 1.

The central recommendation of the WGCR is that each family medicine residency training program in Canada is to establish a competency-based curriculum in family medicine that is comprehensive, focused on continuity, and centred in family medicine—the Triple C Competency-based Curriculum (Triple C).


Triple C competency-based curriculum. Report of the Working Group on Postgraduate Curriculum Review – Part 2

The Triple C Competency-based Curriculum Report – Part 2 aims to assist stakeholders in the full implementation of the Triple C Competency-based Curriculum (Triple C). It gathers expert opinions, resources and tools developed by members of various CFPC educational committees, and intends to guide the change toward the Triple C curriculum. Triple C, the renewed approach to the delivery of family medicine education in Canada, was presented in 2011 with the publication of the Triple C Competency-based Curriculum Report – Part 1. Triple C Report – Part 1 provided the direction for change. It defined the elements of a competency-based curriculum and presented recommendations for CFPC’s adoption of Triple C. Triple C Report – Part 2 focuses on advancing successful implementation strategies. Guided by the Triple C Report – Part 2, the CFPC looks forward to its ongoing collaboration with all colleagues involved in family medicine education. Collectively we can achieve our vision of graduating family physicians who are ready to begin the practice of comprehensive family medicine in any community in Canada.
