Refresher training

SHARE

Refresher training, irrespective of whether or not it is completed pursuant to the Regulation respecting periods of refresher training and refresher courses that may be imposed on physicians, is intended for physicians who have a medical degree and a permit to practice issued by the Collège des médecins du Québec. A training card is not required.


If the physician is not subject to the Regulation, he may:

  • Organize the refresher training directly with the training supervisor, the director of professional services (DPS) or the medical director of the training site.

    Recognition of training, if necessary, can be obtained from the training supervisor or from the institution where the refresher training is completed;

    OR
     
  • Ask the Collège's Practice Enhancement Division (PED) to organize the refresher training.

    The objectives of the refresher training must be established by the Collège in collaboration with the physician and the training supervisor and an assessment of learning and a report must be provided to the Collège by the training supervisor.

    The report is then entered in the physician’s professional record.

    File opening fees apply to this type of request. The PED is responsible for ensuring that all the necessary agreement privileges are in place so that the physician can complete the refresher training.

If the physician is subject to the Regulation, he must contact the Collège's Practice Enhancement Division (PED).

The refresher training objectives for the new field of practice must be established by the Collège in collaboration with the physician and an assessment of learning and a report must be provided to the Collège by the training supervisor.

The report is then submitted to the Collège’s Executive Committee and, if the refresher training has been successfully completed, authorization to practice in this new field is entered in the physician's professional record.

File opening fees apply to this type of request. The PED is responsible for ensuring that all the necessary agreement privileges are in place so that the physician can complete the refresher training in the institution.
