The Division of Continuing Medical Education is pleased to expand on our existing Wellness Program with the following series of accredited education sessions. These are intended for people leaders, such as Department and Division Heads, who are looking for Wellness sessions to support their faculty on a wide variety of topics. All sessions are designed to act as a standalone element delivered in a single 1-hour session, or to be combined into a module to support a broader learning engagement (i.e. a half day, full day, etc.). Each session is accredited by CME for 1 hour of Group Learning Activity through the MOC program at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

CME recognizes that a lack of organizational and individual Wellness may well be the single, largest challenge for people leaders and individuals as we move forward through the pandemic and beyond. The evidence is clear: when faculty and learners participate in Wellness and personal health training, the organization and the individual become healthier and more productive. As always, CME remains dedicated to supporting you and your faculty in all areas of your professional growth and evolution.
