Defining competence for the purposes of certification by the College of Family Physicians of Canada: The evaluation objectives in family medicine.

College of Family Physicians of Canada. Working Group on the Certification Process.

The evaluation objectives presented here will guide the College’s Board of Examiners in the choice of criteria for the testing and certification of competence in family medicine, during both in-training evaluation and the Certification Examination in Family Medicine. They will serve to ensure that the certification decisions maintain acceptable validity and reliability. To do this, the evaluation objectives have been designed to clearly describe the domain of competence, as well as the skills and behaviours to be tested within each topic and within each dimension of competence.
