Competence by Design (CBD) Webinar Series

The transition to competency-based residency training influences numerous elements of our medical education system. Please joins us for a series of webinars designed to support programs through the implementation of Competence by Design (CBD). Led by Royal College clinician educators and by early pioneers in CBD implementation, we will explain the requirements, where there is flexibility given your local context and good practices that have been adopted since launch.

Note that for each session we have identified a specific target audience as well as recommended timing for participation, but anyone is welcome to attend the sessions at any time during their transition process.

CBD has introduced many changes in medical education. Participate in or watch the free CBD Webinar Series to stay on top of the current issues! Watch Recorded Webinars
