Coming soon: Pulse Check Survey for residents
Working with Resident Doctors of Canada to hear residents’ perspectives
As we work with our partners to implement Competence by Design (CBD), we know how important it is to listen to those on the ground who are living and breathing this new model of training on a day-to-day basis.
Postgraduate medical education (PGME) stakeholders across the country are performing important evaluation work around CBD, and the knowledge collected is ensuring that experiences and perspectives from across the diverse range of stakeholders are used to inform improvements in the system for everyone involved.
Resident Doctors of Canada (RDoC) and members of the Royal College CBD Program Evaluation Operations Team (PE Ops) are currently planning a CBD Resident Pulse Check Survey.
This survey will gather the perspectives and experiences of resident doctors who are currently training in Canadian PGME programs that have implemented CBD. The information gained from this evaluation will be used to help monitor the fidelity of CBD implementation, and identify benefits, challenges, and opportunities for adaptation and improvement, specifically as it relates to the resident educational experience.
The online survey will be released in October 2021 via an email invitation, which will be sent to residents directly from their respective Provincial Housestaff Organization (PHO). Results will then be shared widely by RDoC and the Royal College, and will be used to further improve CBD moving forward.
