CFPC pauses plan to implement third year of residency training  


The College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) has paused its plan to implement a third year in family practice training after a significant number of family physicians, government leadership, and medical organizations spoke out against the idea. CFPC had initially planned to mandate a third year of specialty training starting in 2027, citing the need to better prepare family physicians for more complex cases. However, in a non-binding vote, more than 91% of the family physicians in attendance of the CFPC’s annual membership meeting voted against the plan, raising concerns about existing labour gaps in the medical field.
