Competency based education (CBE) is a pedagogical approach that struggled to gain momentum after being introduced several decades ago. A more recent revival of this approach has been inspired by health professions training programs, the most notable being medical education (CBME). This revival has inspired global discussions about best practices for competency-based education and assessment design. In theory, the principles of CBME easily generalize to any specialty, academic institution, or country. In reality, there are infinite possibilities for translation into a local undergraduate medical education context. In this talk I will explore examples of different translations of the outcomes-based foundation of CBME, within Canadian undergraduate medical education programs. 

Association of Biochemistry Educators (ABE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
