The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) has undertaken an initiative referred to as the Outcomes in Training Project (OTP) which involves modifications to the training of Family Medicine Residents across Canada.

Detailed information about the OTP can be found on the CFPC website.

Questions about the coming changes should be directed to email: If you do not receive a response within three working days, please contact us.


In 2018 the CFPC commissioned the Outcomes of Training Project (OTP) as a critical review of family medicine residency training during dynamically changing times and challenges to the discipline. The purpose was to clarify the intended goals and outcomes of training, and to determine if and how training could evolve to meet societal needs. The project takes place in two stages with phase one focused on analysis and recommendations (now complete).

What’s next?

By March 2024, the CFPC will have a national snapshot of what a renewed curriculum will look like, and what is possible in terms of implementation.
