​Practice Management Curriculum (PMC) ― program overview

The Practice Management Curriculum (PMC) is a series of informal, interactive seminars for family medicine and specialty residents. These seminars, designed to help residents ask the right questions when evaluating opportunities, complement medical training and encourage sharing of experiences and lifelong learning about managing a medical practice.

Learn how the University of Manitoba has made PMC courses mandatory for their residents and how you can too.
