CBME Newsletter- march 2023
ADAPTATIONS TO CBD
As you likely know the Royal College announced their plans to clearly specify the accreditation requirements for CBD and where institutions have flexibility with respect to implementation; as well as making changes to the model, in order to address concerns voiced by stakeholders thus far. This is to involve a consultation process with key stakeholders. The CBME Leads and Postgraduate Deans are currently working with the Royal College to consider adaptations to improve CBD to address the challenges and unintended consequences that are placing undue stress on residents and program leaders, faculty, and staff. Lisa Colizza, CBME Lead, will be compiling suggested adaptations arising from our QI work to date and will reach out to PDs, CBD Leads, CC Chairs, PAs for input over the next month.
NEW ROYAL COLLEGE RESOURCES
This new learning module helps academic coaches co-create goals and learning plans with their residents and identify barriers and enablers for engagement.

Further clarification on function of Competence Committee (CC) and Resident Program Committee (RPC) with respect to ratification of decisions of resident status and progression
See revised Terms of Reference for Competence Committees/Technical Guide 5.0 Competence Committees (Royal College, December, 2022))
- Resident status and progression decisions can be made by the Competence Committee and this does not require ratification by the Residency Program Committee (RPC),
- Competence Committee (CC) Chairs will provide an overall review of the CC activity; numbers and decisions made, procedures and processes used, challenges etc. to the RPC as part of the CC and program CQI. The postgraduate annual Competence Committee Check List should be used to provide the report to the RPC, with a copy to the CBME office.
