Assessment Objectives for Certification in Family Medicine
Assessment Objectives for Certification in Family Medicine – Updated version
Competencies are described in terms of their most salient key features and observable behaviours. Each competency is specific to the situation’s context and to the phases of the clinical encounter; furthermore, each competency is linked back to the appropriate skill dimension, reinforcing this essential relationship.
For further details about competence-based assessment and its components, please refer to the College’s 2018 Continuous Reflective Assessment for Training (CRAFT) document.
