He shares the commonly held goals to; reduce the resource burden of selection for Family Medicine, to ensure this is done in a fair and transparent manner in a designed selection system based on best available evidence while, at the same time, ensuring the right applicants are selected who are most likely to deliver the family medicine care needed the most by Canadians.

Objectives

  • describe the background and drivers to the recent changes in Family Medicine residency selection in Canada.
  • contrast the challenges specific to FM selection with those encountered in other specialities.
  • define the recent changes made in Family Medicine residency selection.

In addition, they will consider what the next steps are, or might be, in further improving the selection process for Family Medicine and whether, with the current Family Medicine crisis in Canada, the selection process itself might offer opportunities to help address this.
