99 Priority Topics
The College of Family Physicians of Canada has published a list of 99 “priority topics” for trainees in family medicine. This list, known as the “99 Topics,” underlines the breadth of family medicine, lays out key learning objectives for each topic and serves as a useful study guide for residents preparing for their CCFP licensing examination.
The CFPC has also recently created a supplemental list of priority topics for rural and remote family practice. This list is particularly relevant to the residents of the Rural Okanagan program, as many go on to practice in rural communities throughout British Columbia and Canada.
The CFPC has created a list of 65 core procedural skills for a family physician, including abscess I&D, slit-lamp exam, etc. View the full list of core procedures.
