Medical education programs play a critical role in our health care system. They help ensure Canadians receive the best possible health care by providing rigorous, up-to-date and comprehensive medical training.
In 1979, we co-founded the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS) to ensure physicians across the country graduate from medical school with a strong academic foundation. We also support the ongoing professional development of physicians in Canada and lend our unique perspective to important issues tied to medical education.
