  1. Also the exam is only one day now in October
  2. Recent Calgary FM grad. I would beg to differ. I had a great experience in the program and feel a couple negative experiences have really perpetuated thaw negative feeling around the program.There has been a change of leadership about a year-2 years ago but I think it was actually a positive change. She’s a younger PD but more connected with the residents than I feel like prior PD was. Overall, current leadership has been really responsive to resident feedback, especially to facilitate changes through covid, and there have been a lot of changes to address the above issues implemented in the pa
  3. Hi! I have been told that the effective date of the CPSBC license is July 8- does anyone have any experience as to whether they send it earlier or it’s right on July 8? Thanks in advance!

  5. Any thoughts on whether the CFPC will follow suit with the royal college and also cancel the oral exam component of the exam?
  6. Is Ontario the only one issuing 6 month licenses with supervision? Have all the other provinces released their policy? I know Alberta is 1 year no supervision license.
  7. It's looking like the only hope left though now. They have just about enough to secure the special meeting so will be interesting to follow what comes of it. Some big names and support on the petition as well like the former dean of U of T and Chair of medicine at U of T. Fingers crossed!
  8. Posted this in another group but might be of interest here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfC63jV31Ptd5iMuktc98Av9G_a5vmtHDTEuvWEEGO8C8s71g/viewform?fbclid=IwAR0thDfzGotNM0uC9z_UBEOMmdILUiTMzVaVFr3UDRS72e8cz5if2vAheIo Really great to see a PD advocating on resident's behalf, hopefully will see some creative solutions from this

  10. Absolutely agree, I think there is always a solution, I just find that it has been very frustrating because it seems that both the RC and the CCFP haven't been too open to a negotiation surrounding exam plans or alternate methods of obtaining certification. As of now, it still appears that their plan is both written and oral exams are in October and some sort of possible provisional license but no definite updates . I understand the complexities of planning big licensing exams but I would have appreciated to have felt like resident feedback was heard
  11. Further to approve the >2000 new provisional licenses between GP/specialist will probably take a lot of time. Right now, provisional licenses are only approved monthly- even if they do allow everyone to get one they will probably be ++ delayed. Models are showing COVID peaking in July. It seems counterintuitive to now ask >2000 doctors to do extra work to supervise new grads in the midst of the all this. Poor use of resources. This will also greatly affect rural areas where there might not be doctors to supervise and now new grads can not go up there to work.
  12. I think what many are advocating for is a change to the system , to make an exception in this climate, and allow residency programs to evaluate and perhaps jointly award FRCSC/CCFP without having to write exams 6+ months into 'semi supervised' practice
  13. One of the most interesting things to me is that there is such a reduced level of impact to applicants to med schools, medical students and clerkship students and junior residents to a degree. Most medical schools have been extremely accommodating with all online lectures, cancelled or slightly postponed exams and clear updates and expectations. It seems the royal college and CFPC have not been even nearly as accommodating despite the greater effect of writing exams 6+ months later and significant restrictions on provisional licensure (can not work in many rural settings or areas without a sup
  14. http://www.royalcollege.ca/rcsite/documents/about/update-coronavirus-e This is absolutely terrible and unfair. The implications of having the stress and having to study into ?independent practice as well as taking unpaid study and exam leave is terrible. There should have been further advocacy by programs and program directors to look more closely in alternative licensing options.
  15. The royal college released an update today exams will be postponed until around mid to late April and will be held in home cities no word from CFPC yet on the state of their exams http://www.royalcollege.ca/rcsite/documents/about/update-coronavirus-e
