Residency Practice Based Small Group Learning Program

The Residency PBSG Program is an extension of the PBSG Learning Program and is currently offered to family medicine residency programs across Canada and internationally. Trained faculty members serve as facilitators for each residency group using interactive small group sessions (i.e., 4-10 participants). The sessions include case-based discussion (using the PBSG modules) and are designed to promote active reflection on practice (i.e., bringing own patient cases, completing practice reflection tools, practice audits, etc).

We hope to assist training programs in providing a PBSG learning component, which promotes reflective learning strategies in a setting of peer collaboration. Our goal is to facilitate the transition from learning as part of a formal training program, to a commitment toward self-directed CME, which will assist physicians throughout their professional careers.

New starting June 2019!
