About NOSM Education Research Communities

Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

The Royal College supports lifelong learning and the assessment of competence and performance from residency through practice into retirement. Royal College Fellows (members) are committed to providing high-quality specialty medical care. They are also committed to their own continuing professional development, which is supported through the Royal College’s Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program.

For a full listing of activities eligible for MOC Section credit, please visit the Royal College Website detailing CPD Activities You Can Record.

Resources provided by the Royal College for self-learning include:

  1. CLIP Seminar Series: The CLIP (Centre for Learning in Practice) Seminar Series promotes scholarship as a factor in the advancement of specialty medical education and policy, as well as lifelong learning and continuing professional development. To promote broad understanding of and engagement in scholarship and research for Fellows, the Centre has developed a Seminar Series focused on developing foundational competencies within research and scholarship.

    Cost: Free
  2. Cochrane Learning: The Cochrane Collaboration provides learning activities based upon a Cochrane Review and includes five questions to help you both translate the results of the Cochrane Review to clinical practice, and understand systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Guided reflective evaluations provide the opportunity for you to document how each learning activity will influence your future practice, providing a complete learning package.

    Cost: Free for all Fellows and MOC participants of the Royal College
  3. Personal Learning Projects: Group learning can serve as the stimulus or a resource to the development of a personal learning project. The Royal College has developed a planning template to enable you to create personal learning projects to leverage your participation in group learning. These activities are self-planned and are developed to answer a question, issue, or problem that you have identified in your practice.

    Cost: Free
