Don’t miss the Competence by Design (CBD) panel on Saturday, October 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT.

Entitled “From competence by time to competence by design:  An update to the proposed transformation of Canadian medical education”, this interactive panel session will give you the opportunity to

  • Find out what steps the Royal College has taken, and will be taking, towards successful implementation;
  • Discuss implications across the continuum;
  • Ask questions, share feedback and provide advice to the Royal College; and
  • Better understand and prepare for CBD.

Following an overview of CBD with Drs. Jason Frank and Ken Harris, participants will break into small groups and determine the topics, questions and issues to be raised collectively with the panelists — Drs Scott Berry, Leslie Flynn, Kevin Imrie and Jolanta Karpinski.

Attend the Oct. 25 session and help shape how competency-based practices are rolled out across medical education.
