A consistent Triple C curriculum is delivered across all sites in their different clinical settings, with centralized monthly didactic learning. Ongoing assessment maps resident progress to determine areas of competency and identify skills requiring additional attention. Residents graduate prepared to contribute to enhanced primary care delivery anywhere they choose to practice.

Our program is strengthened by our Global Health initiatives, which support our residents in engaging in academic activities in international settings and underserved Canadian regions. This program promotes global equity in healthcare, and helps our residents to enhance their training through unique clinical experiences.

Advanced third year training is also available in a variety of disciplines through our PGY3 Enhanced Skills Program.
