Representing over 10,000 resident doctors across Canada, providing a unified, national voice for our membership.
Resident doctors are provided with opportunities in residency, to develop their teaching, mentoring and leadership skills. To maximize this opportunity and extend its benefits to senior and junior residents, many programs offer teaching skills programs for residents. These programs impart effective teaching strategies that support residents and equip them with the skills to execute their role as a teacher successfully.
Resident Doctors of Canada is undertaking this environmental scan to identify best practices for resident teaching skills training across Canada. We hope to use this information, along with other data collected in our environmental scan, to better understand what resident teaching skills training programs are provided to resident doctors across Canada to equip them with the skills necessary to be effective teachers. This information will also be used to advocate for some consistency in standards and strategies across programs/universities and to share best practices.
We have prepared a brief questionnaire below and are seeking your input. This is a follow-up request to the scan we circulated to the postgraduate deans last year. Results will be collated and shared with the Postgraduate Deans and offices. Thank you for your time and please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Should we need to follow-up with you or communicate the information gathered, please provide the name and contact information for the staff person responsible for teaching to teach in your postgraduate department.
