CCFP

Preparation for the CCFP Exam

Online self-learning (pre-course modules) and an online workshop

Course Overview

This course is designed for practice eligible physicians (see below for eligibility definition) who are preparing to undertake the CCFP Exam*. The course will provide participants with an overview of the principles of family medicine, an overview of the patient-centred clinical method, pre-course practice with Short Answer Management Problems (SAMPs) and feedback, an opportunity to practice writing SAMPs in an exam-like setting and to discuss the SAMP component of the exam.

NOTE: The content of this course is not endorsed by The College of Family Physicians of Canada nor is it reviewed by the Board of Examiners at the College to ensure alignment with the CCFP certification examination. Participating in the course does not guarantee success on the certification examination.

The focus of this course is to help participants to familiarize themselves with the format, types of questions and marking scheme as well as to share tips and tricks on how to answer, and not to provide detailed educational teaching on the hot topics.

Course Objectives

At the end of this program, the participant will be equipped to:

  • Apply a planned approach to SAMPs components of the Certification Examination in Family Medicine
  • Recognize techniques to improve performance at the Certification Examination in Family Medicine

Preparation for the CCFP Exam Course runs a couple of times per year depending on demand.
