AFMC Response to the Canadian Opioid Crisis

AFMC has released a series of online educational modules for medical students across the country. This will help close gaps in current educational offerings and ensure future physicians are better prepared to address pain management and addiction medicine. 

Supported with a financial contribution from Health Canada, the new curriculum was created by a multidisciplinary team of subject-matter experts and stakeholders.

Dr. Abhimanyu Sud, one of our subject matter experts provides an overview of the project.

More to come: Curriculum for post-graduate medical education and continuing professional development

The Government of Canada has extended its funding to include the development of a national, bilingual, comprehensive, and competency-based curriculum for post-graduate medical education (PGME) and continuing professional development (CPD). This project will build on the concepts and content of the undergraduate curriculum as well as draw on subject matter experts and have input from those with lived experiences. This new curriculum will be launched in early 2023.
