Annapolis Valley Teaching Site Curriculum

A focus on continuity 

The Annapolis Valley site will be one of the first in Canada to use the newly approved Triple C compentency-based curriculum. Approved by the College of Family Physicians, this unique curriculum focuses on continuity of care (rather than quantity of time spent in training), continuity of education and continuity of evaluation, all done predominantly by family doctors.

Family doctors will be training the next generation of physicians instead of the traditional specialist block-training of the past. These experiences for the most part will be longitudinal over the two years of residency training in an effort to produce more comprehensive clinical training.

With a focus on the delivery of the new Triple C curriculum, the curriculum topics will remain the same, but the process in which the residents are trained and evaluated will be modified. We're very excited at the prospect that our residents will receive a truly comprehensive family medicine training in their two years allowing them to provide both acute and chronic care.
