Basic Training progress reports

What is a Progress Report?

Progress Reports provide comprehensive, timely and constructive feedback to Basic Trainees by facilitating regular and meaningful communication between supervisors, the Director of Physician Education (DPE) and trainees. Supervisors complete Progress Reports at regular intervals throughout Basic Training. 

A successful Progress Report will:

  • Provide regular feedback to trainees
  • Identify Trainees in difficulty and provide timely support
  • Provide information to the College on a trainee’s training program
