Canada’s crisis of primary care access: Is expanding residency training to 3 years a solution?

Updated: Mar 3

In 2022, The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) published its final report of the Outcomes of Training Project, including the recommendation to extend family medicine residency training from 2 to 3 years. Through an expanded training program, the CFPC’s goal is to support family physicians to work at the “top of their scope” by enabling residents to meet societal needs, manage complexity and address medical comorbidity through comprehensive primary care practice. While this effort at curricular renewal is welcomed, important concerns should be considered during the transition period.
