Events for Competence Committee Chairs


In recognition of the important role that Competence Committee Chairs play in PGME, we are hosting a series of free 90-minute virtual events to foster online learning and connection for Canadian Competence Committee Chairs. The sessions are facilitated in English but may include breakout sessions in French based on registration.

Each virtual session includes a presentation on trending topics and moderated breakout room sessions targeted at level/need. These events are designed to answer questions, identify common challenges and share ideas. To join discussions between sessions please join our Slack group at

Together we can learn and contribute to CBD in a meaningful and collaborative manner.
