Competency Based Medical Education

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada is committed to ushering in a new era of competency-based medical education (CBME) in Canada with the introduction of the Competence by Design (CBD) program.

Competence by Design (CBD) is a multi-year initiative to implement a competency-based medical education approach to residency education and specialty practice in Canada and to align Royal College policies and processes with a CBME approach.

Resources to aid residency programs in this transition to Competency Based Medical Education and additional support will be provided by the PGME office. Once resources are available they will be posted on our website.
