New Rural Certificates of Added Competence (CAC) for FP’s with Surgical Skills

The CFPC has invited the online application for CAC's in Enhanced Surgical Skills and Obstetrical Surgical Skills, through the leader route. The window for application will stay open until June 2020. Together with the elevation of the training programs to Category 1 (like EM, FPA) with national training standards, this is an important step forward for Canada’s rural hospitals, and the sustainability of our maternity, surgery, trauma, critical care, and emergency medicine services. 

The SRPC has done much of the research, advocacy, and developmental work for these new Category 1 and CAC’s in Enhanced Surgical Skills and Obstetrical Surgical Skills. For more background, please visit our ESS website Training Page  or browse our ESS/OSS Library Page

To its great credit, and with our very large appreciation, the CFPC has invested heavily from their leadership and their resources to build these new CAC’s. 

Information and guidance related to the CAC application process, as well access to the application itself, can be found on the CAC web page.
