  1. CANMEDS evaluation at end of program
  2. Theory/Knowledge: Pre and Post Integrated Key Theory, Case-Based Evaluation.
  3. Practical Skills Evaluation Post Program OSCE
  4. Clinical Performance/Competency Appraisals /Clinic logs with record of engagement in defined specialty/subspecialty clinics
  5. Self Directed Learning:
    • 5 clinical case reports: Trainees will be responsible for the identification of 5 content-defined clinical cases for written appraisal by ACPAC Program Medical Directors
    • Problem-based Learning: Clinical scenarios/vignettes (n=11)
      • Topic of choice (n=6)
      • Model of Care Project (Baseline and End of Program)
