Competency Based Medical Education
A competency is an observable ability, such as the demonstration of knowledge or skill, within a certain context.

Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME) is an outcomes-based (competency) approach to the design, implementation, assessment and evaluation of a medical education program. The competencies taught and learned are based on the abilities needed to practice in the profession.

Programs in 2019 CBD Roll Out

CBME is not just happening here; PGME programs across the country are working alongside the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) to design and implement Competence By Design (CBD) - the RCPSC's version of CBME being applied in all specialties across Canada.

Competence by Design (CBD) is the RCPSC's hybrid CBME design wherein residents must demonstrate an acceptable level of competency and complete their service contract before moving on to the next stage of their training.
