The Canadian Paediatric Review Program is an annual preparation (PREP) review program designed
for all senior paediatric trainees who are completing their training in Canada. This review
program is intended as a knowledge consolidation and assessment exercise.
Senior paediatric trainees who are completing their training within Canada, junior paediatric trainees and
consultant paediatricians in clinical practice would benefit from attending this program.
In total, about 35 topics are presented covering the major specialty areas within
Each year participants are asked to complete a needs assessment which is used by the organizing committee to select topics for any given year.
Speakers are chosen from educational institutions across Canada and are selected based on their
expertise and familiarity with each selected topic. Please note, the paediatric review program
is not sponsored by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. All Royal College Examiners
have been excluded from participating in this program or providing any input on selected topics
and contents of the material covered within each topic.
Past programs have provided overwhelmingly positive feedback from the participants. Feedback
from the program shows:
- 99% felt that the review program met its educational objectives.
- 99% indicated that touch pad technology helped to identify areas of strength and
- 97% would recommend the program to their colleagues.
The highest ranked topics identified in the needs assessment are selected for inclusion in the program.
