Program Information

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.

We hope that you enjoyed your experience with the Residency version of our Practice Based Small Group (PBSG) Learning Program.

We know that the past year has been difficult due to COVID-19 and that early-career physicians face particular financial challenges.

That is why this year, we are offering a 50% DISCOUNT to new members joining in their first five years of practice.

For the 2022 membership year, new members in their first five years of practice will receive 50% off their first year in the program. For $197.50, you can earn all of the CPFC’s Mainpro+ credits you will need in a given year. In addition, if you join in 2021, the membership fee will be prorated.
