The Foundation Course in Occupational Medicine, developed at the University of Alberta, is now being presented across Canada in two parts.
Our British Columbia Part A course is facilitated by three BC occupational physicians and runs from September to May by monthly teleconferences and two full-day face-to-face Vancouver-based workshops (21 Jan and 27–28 May).
This practical, case-based, group learning curriculum enhances the effectiveness of primary care and community-based physicians in dealing with occupational medicine cases including fitness-to-work determinations and disability prevention and management.
Course enrollment is limited to 15 participants to enhance the small-group experience.
This course (Part A) has been accredited by the CFPC for up to 111 M1-MainPro credits.
Those completing Part A can progress to the Part B course. Participants who pass written exams on both parts are eligible for accreditation from the Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine.
