11th Canadian Comprehensive Review Course in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Feb 28 - March 6, 2020, Toronto, ON
The 11th Canadian Comprehensive Review Course in PM&R will be held Feb 28 to Mar 6, 2020 at Bridgepoint Active Healthcare, Sinai Health System, 1 Bridgepoint Drive, Toronto, ON, M4M 2B5. The Canadian Comprehensive Review Course (CCRC) is organized biennially for Canadian PM&R residents.
The Canadian Comprehensive Review Course in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation was created in 2000 as a joint collaborative between the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto, with the goal of providing a forum for a complete overview and review of the diverse clinical content within this specialty. This course brings together the basics of musculoskeletal and neuroanatomy with the core clinical presentations and evidence-based management of conditions seen by specialists in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, utilizing national experts to deliver high quality content for all participants. This course remains a non-profit event, and the organizers strive for continued improvements in the quality and relevance of course content and delivery, based on participant feedback. This course is intended to give an up-to-date review of relevant information for graduating Canadian PM&R residents. It also provides the opportunity to consolidate learning and assist in preparing these senior resident physicians for transition to real-world practice. The Review Course is also an opportunity for residents from across Canada to meet each other, form lasting friendships, and strengthen our national PM&R community.
Organization of the Review Course
Based on positive feedback from the 2018 participants we will continue to hold the practice Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) near the beginning of the course (1st or 3rd day of the course depending on venue availability). Residents will complete the written examinations at their home sites, prior to attending the course, under the supervision of their home faculty. The individual results from both the written and OSCE examinations will be made available to each participant at a designated time mid-way through the course. We hope that this structure will enrich the value of the review course for each participant and allow time for self-reflection and ongoing learning.
By the end of this review course, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate individual areas of limitations in knowledge, skills, or attitudes pertaining to the practice of PM&R, and thus identify areas requiring focus for future studying and ongoing learning;
- Summarize the fundamental concepts of the different core clinical areas within the specialty of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation;
- Correlate musculoskeletal and neurological anatomy to the clinical presentations common to PM&R;
- Perform the essential physical examination skills required of the general PM&R practitioner.
