Almost all postgraduate (residency) training programs apply a competency framework to structure curriculum, teaching, learning and assessment, with the CanMEDS framework being one of the most frequently used. Linda's selection this week, a grounded theory analysis of observations and interviews, aims to explore how the CanMEDS framework informs residents’ practice-based training and interactions with supervisors.

Authors: Renting N, Raat ANJ, Dornan T, Wenger-Trayner E, van der Wal MA, Borleffs JCC, Gans ROB, Jaarsma ADC.
