We are pleased to announce the launch of a new module in the Communication and Cultural Competence orientation program. This free online program was created for candidates preparing for MCC exams and for those going through a practice-ready assessment program. The Professional challenges module covers a variety of topics such as professionalism, ethical dilemmas, duty to respond, privacy and confidentiality, and providing feedback. The content will be particularly helpful for those who might not have had exposure to professional challenges within a Canadian health-care context. This module consists of two scenarios, each featuring different professional challenges that a physician might encounter. These scenarios include video, audio and text accompanied by reflective exercises and resources. Special thanks to Dr. Lynn Russell and the National Assessment Collaboration practice ready assessment programs, specialists and medical regulatory authorities for their input in the development of this new content. We hope you enjoy this new module and welcome any feedback. If you have any questions or concerns, please send us an email to communications@mcc.ca.
