The FMEC PG Project ensures Canadian medical residents continue to receive world-class training. Four specific objectives have been set for the project:

  • To ensure that the postgraduate medical education system in Canada continues to equip medical residents with knowledge, skills, attitudes and values to provide high quality medical care and be responsive to changing societal needs
  • To address through postgraduate medical education the production of physicians in Canada to ensure the appropriate balance between generalists and specialists
  • To ensure that areas such as bioethics, professionalism, communication skills and a population health approach are emphasized to the same degree as some other aspects of medical education
  • To identify the resources needed to support changes in medical residency training
