Physician Professional Practice Development Program

To improve physician performance and quality of patient care, a performance review tool has been designed and implemented for physicians in Fraser Health.

The Program is not a performance appraisal but will provide much requested feedback from multiple sources about the physician’s demonstration of the CanMEDS Competencies. This will provide opportunity for self- reflection and encourage and facilitate professional development with the goal of optimizing patient care.

This voluntary program will be available to all Fraser Health Physicians starting in 2016.
