The CanMEDS ModulesThe CanMEDS Roles are a group of characteristics that the Royal College of Physicians of Canada and the College of Family Physicians of Canada have adopted for residents. These Roles have a set of competencies identified for each one. All of the Roles are common to the speciality programs and family medicine with the exception of the Medical Expert. This Role has been modified by the College of Family Physicians to reflect the unique aspects of a family doctor.
The Postgraduate Medical Education Office at Queen's University stresses the importance of the CanMEDS Roles to our residents. A series of online modules are being developed which explain each Role and provide resources to better understand the specific Role. We hope that these modules help you achieve your goals during your training as a physician.
