CPRB News - March 2023
March 21, 2023
Welcome, everybody, to the first post in our new series – CPRB News!
This series will replace the Residency Board newsletter (RB News) and will feature monthly posts on a variety of residency-related topics.
This month, we will be focusing on CPRB-accredited programs, highlighting the programs we surveyed last season, as well as the programs we will be visiting in Spring 2023.
In Fall 2022, CPRB surveyors visited a total of six programs, including: Hamilton Health Sciences (Hamilton, ON), St. Joseph’s Healthcare (Hamilton, ON), Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre – Year 1 General Program (Toronto, ON), Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre – Year 1 Ambulatory Program (Toronto, ON), Women’s College Hospital (Toronto, ON), and Nova Scotia Health Authority (Halifax, NS).
All programs were successful in securing renewed accreditation status. Congratulations to these programs on their achievements!
In Spring 2023, CPRB surveyors will be visiting another six programs, including: Interior Health (Kelowna, BC), Saskatchewan Health Authority (Regina, SK), University of Waterloo / Centre for Family Medicine Family Health Team (Kitchener/Waterloo, ON), Island Health (Victoria, BC), Horizon Health Network (Moncton & St. John, NB), and Northern Health Authority (Prince George, BC).
We would like to thank the directors and coordinators of these programs for all the work they and their teams have devoted to preparing for the surveys. The Board appreciates your time, effort, and commitment to residency training, and we look forward to visiting you soon!
Be sure to stay tuned for next month’s edition of CPRB News, where we will share some key statistics and upcoming changes to the Pharmacy Residency Application & Matching Service (PRAMS).
