Extension of training (family medicine)
Resident doctors completing the two-year family medicine program have several options for carrying out additional rotations, adapting or extending their training, or personalizing their careers. But some of these options are little known, or differ from one program to another. We have therefore drawn up this Guide, to better inform our members in family medicine.
This Guide looks at three options: flexibility within the curriculum; extension of residency; and Enhanced Skills Training programs. To facilitate consultation, information is grouped together by medical faculty.
This guide therefore brings together the different options available, eligibility criteria, certain local restrictions, selection processes, and timeframes.
