In the PGY2 year, all residents, in collaboration with their faculty advisor and community preceptor, must complete a community based PQI during a major Family Medicine rotation. The PQI project must be done individually and must be presented to the clinic before the completion of the rotation. A copy of the project must be submitted to the Program.

* All urban residents must complete and present a “Practice” PQI during PGY1 Family Medicine Blocktime.

The PQI goals are:
  • To provide family medicine residents the opportunity to develop the skills required to implement the process of quality assessment and improvement in their clinical practices, and
  • To meet the “audit” requirements outlined in the educational requirements of the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
The PQI project will conclude with a presentation (poster, seminar, publication) in an appropriate venue.
