All of the University of Ottawa’s residency programs are accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) or the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). The accreditation process ensures that residency programs meet the highest possible standards and that residents will be prepared to take their RCPSC and CFPC examinations and will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary for excellency in practice.
The University of Ottawa’s PGME programs were last reviewed in November 2016 by the RCPSC and the CFPC. Currently, 72 residency programs and 4 AFC programs are accredited. The next accreditation will take place in 2024.
