Accreditation of residency programs
The Royal College, the College of Family Physicians of Canada, and the Collège des médecins du Québec maintain national standards for the evaluation and accreditation of Canadian residency programs.
Accreditation is a process that ensures that all residency programs accredited by the Royal College adhere to a set of minimum standards. These General Standards of Accreditation include the A Standards which apply to the university, specifically the postgraduate medical education office, and the B Standards, which apply to each residency program.
In addition to the B Standards, each program is accredited in relation to the following specialty-specific standards and requirements:
