Both the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the ACGME in the USA have recommended that all post-graduate training programs in medicine become competency based in the near future. Our day-long workshop on how to develop and implement a competency based training curriculum in residency training programs hopes to assist program directors, chairs, and educators involved in this initiative in preparing for these changes. The past two workshops have garnered positive feedback from participants. This year, we expand the workshop to include interactive, breakout sessions with expert faculty implementing CBME in anesthesia, emergency medicine, otolaryngology, orthopaedic surgery and medical oncology.
