Undergraduate Education Committee (UGEC)

The Undergraduate Education Committee (UGEC) is a sub-committee of the Section of Teachers (SOT) council. Its purpose is to provide a national focus for undergraduate family medicine. This committee strategically supports Undergraduate Directors across Canada to create dynamic undergraduate family medicine experiences. The UGEC is also devoted to improving the number of medical students that choose family medicine, as well as preparing them for their new career. This will be accomplished by establishing best practices in undergraduate Family Medicine education. 

The release of the Undergraduate Education Committee’s (UGEC) most recent discussion paper, “CanMEDS-FMU: Undergraduate Competencies from a Family Medicine Perspective,” was officially launched at the Canadian Conference on Medical Education in St. John’s, Newfoundland in May 2010. This document is now available online for download.
