TACT Monograph, August 2015 (click here for a link)
THE OIME manages many issues about the distributed and integrated placement of learners for clinical experiences. With changing curricular and accreditation standards, physician shortages in certain specialties and communities, new curricular standards, and pressures around clinical teaching capacity, educational quality, and the distribution of learners and preceptor funding envelopes, Dr Sarita Verma commissioned a follow up of the 2008 Task Force on Capacity under the auspices of the Teaching and Academic Capacity in Toronto (TACT) Project. A survey of key programs was conducted in 2014-2015 and this monograph represents the summary of methods and conclusions and is being distributed to clerkship and PG program directors and participants in the TACT survey. The Final Report of TACT represents an analysis of the project and can be found below. A more detailed comprehensive and confidential report has been filed with the Vice Deans UGME and PGME and the co-chairs of TAHSNe and HUEC.
TACT Final Summary Report, August 2015 (click here for a link)
With unprecedented growth and expansion in medical education , a number of factors became increasingly important in determining the necessary placement of learners for clinical experiences. These factors included, for example, changing curricular and accreditation standards, physician shortages in certain specialties and communities, evolving curricular standards, shifts in clinical practice patterns and evolving physician remuneration models. All of these factors have created new opportunities – as well as pressures – around clinical teaching capacity, educational quality, and the distribution of learners and preceptor funding envelopes. Dr Sarita Verma commissioned a follow up of the 2008 Task Force on Capacity under the auspices of the Teaching and Academic Capacity in Toronto (TACT) Project. This Final Report of TACT represents the summary of methods and conclusions. A more detailed comprehensive and confidential report has been filed with the Vice Deans UGME and PGME and the co-chairs of TAHSNe and HUEC.
