Assessment + CBAS

Current Residents can find centralized, detailed information on eClass »

There are three key components to assessment in our residency program.

Competency-based Achievement System (CBAS)

CBAS is the overall framework for assessment in our program. Feedback provided throughout training, as well as information contained in any tool for assessment, all serve as the evidence base for decisions regarding competency. CBAS aligns with the College of Family Physicians of Canada CRAFT (Continuous Reflective Assessment for Training) recommendations.

FieldNotes: Capturing Feedback

FieldNotes are a tool to help residents, preceptors, and advisors to capture a sampling of the feedback that is shared in the workplace. There is an expectation of approximately 1 field note per week entered by a preceptor or faculty advisor (minimum of 40 FieldNotes in first year and 20 FieldNotes in second year). Residents are also encouraged to enter their own FieldNotes of feedback received for later reflection.

Periodic Progress Report: Bringing all of the Evidence Together

The Periodic Progress Report is how we assess the competence of residents as they progress through their training. Residents are given the opportunity to reflect and demonstrate informed/guided self-assessment. The Report is completed and submitted electronically after a meeting between the advisor and the resident to discuss progress and develop a learning plan supporting the resident's progress towards competence.

ITERs are the tools for assessing progress in a clinical experience/rotation.
