    I am a third year resident at Queen's and I am involved in the implementation of Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) at Queen's. I am on here to clear up any questions you all might have about what's going on in the CBME world.

  1. Hello! This is an update to a previous post from last year's CaRMS match. I have provided the same information as last year, while including some information from our experience implementing it this last year. As many of you may know, Queen's implemented Competence By Design (CBD - the Canadian CBME curriculum) on an accelerated timeline. All first year residents in July 2017, in all Queen’s programs, started on the CBD curriculum. Residents will continue on that program in 2018. By way of introduction, I am a member of the Resident Subcommittee on Competency Based Medical Education
  2. Hi Again, I cannot comment specifically for each specialty, because each one is creating their own curriculum. That being said, the overall goal is to have everything that a resident does prepare them to be the best they can in that specialty - and that includes elective time. Sorry I can't give a more definite answer there.
  3. All great points and excellent questions! I see you asked this question a while ago, sorry for the late response. I also see you are in the Schulich 2020 class (great school, btw ). So I will try to answer your questions with the caveat that in three years when you start, things will likely look a lot different. 1) Frequency of assessments will vary by program. That is the short answer. Once or twice a week is a reasonable estimate (that does NOT mean big formal assessments necessarily) 2) The type of assessments are anything from a complete observed history and physical to something
  4. Sorry this took me so long to get back to you - have been away for a while. Salaries will be unchanged for this upcoming group of residents because, as mentioned, the time frame to complete residency isn't likely to change. Hope that answers things! I will try to log on more frequently to answer anything else.
  5. Thanks for the question, Let'sGo - I can't summarize it much better than this reply post, so I will echo what was said here. The decision to hold back a resident is not one that is taken lightly, and definitely is not made by a single staff or preceptor. The advantage to this CBME model is that clinical encounters will now be directly evaluated in a standardized fashion, rather than at the discretion of individual preceptors. In this way, areas of strength and areas of weakness can be identified early on, so that training can be tailored to each individual's strengths and weaknesses. Depe
  6. Hello! As many of you may know, Queen's is implementing Competence By Design (CBD - the Canadian CBME curriculum) on an accelerated timeline. All first year residents in July 2017, in all Queen’s programs, will be under CBD. By way of introduction, I am a member of the Resident Subcommittee on Competency Based Medical Education at Queen's. Part of our mandate is to disseminate information about the CBD program being implemented this upcoming year to final year medical students applying for residency this year. This information will also apply to those applying for Anesthesia and ENT,
