https://policybase.cma.ca/en/permalink/policy532
Date
1994-Oct-22
Topics
Population health/ health equity/ public health
Resolution
That the Canadian Medical Association endorse the principles on postgraduate medical training developed by the National Coordinating Committee on Post-Graduate Medical Training and encourage the Conference of Deputy Ministers to adopt these principles as guidelines for action. [Framework Principles: 1. Physicians are a national resource. 2. The physician to population ratio will be maintained or reduced. 3. The national ratio of general practitioners to specialists should be maintained. 4. The mix and content of training programs must reflect identified population health needs. 5. Further proliferation of sub-specialties should be constrained. 6. Portability of licensure between provinces should exist. 7. Reliance on the recruitment of graduates of foreign medical schools (GOFMS) into Canada should be reduced. 8. The recruitment of GOFMS into Canada for postgraduate training should be reduced, and those trainees who do enter on visas should receive training only in already recognized specialties and agree to return to their countries of origin. 9. The total number of all postgraduate training positions should approximate the number of medical school graduates times the length of post-graduate prelicensure training. 10. Training venues should closely resemble eventual practice settings. 11. Substandard training programs should be eliminated. 12. Regional coordination of sub-speciality training should be promoted. 13. Relocation of training positions across provinces should be considered. 14. As other health care providers have overlapping scopes of capability with physicians, medical training activities should coordinate with roles and training of other health care providers. 15. Trainees should be better informed of the effectiveness, efficiency and alternative allocations of existing or proposed resource commitments designed to improve health through medical care. 16. Better information about shifting human resource needs and context of practice will be provided to students, interns, residents and fellows.]
