College of Family Physicians of Canada

Continuing Professional Development Program Award 

Ten-Minute CBT on November 28, 2021 from 10:00AM to 1:30PM Eastern (9.0 credits)

Physicians trained in medical CBT report less stress, better patient outcomes, and higher job satisfaction (see). Consider a brief introductory workshop. Or plunge straight into the three core modules, in whatever sequence you desire. You'll start providing better psychological care within your standard-length appointments. And you'll earn three-credits-per-hour from the College of Family Physicians of Canada—from wherever you choose to Zoom.

Safety first. All 2021 workshops will be held online. Although we all miss Normal Life, prudence prescribes us hanging in there a little longer. Fortunately, Zoom has plenty of pluses; e.g., fancy polls, fast & easy breakouts, and the utmost flexibility in pantwear. 

Many physician leaders have been trained by CBT Canada over the past 25 years. Alumni include CFPC presidents (both national & provincial), department chairs, residency training program directorsand even a few doctors comfortable with drills & saws. For a compilation of testimonials, click here

CBT Canada was federally incorporated over 25 years ago, on April 2, 1996. We're the same age as WestJet, Pokémon, and Indigo—and a year older than Google. Back in 1996, Jean Chrétien & Bill Clinton were in office, the very first DVD players came out, and Dolly the Sheep was cloned. Celine Dion's Because You Loved Me topped the charts, and The English Patient won the Academy Award

October 1, 2020.  Today marked the passing of one of Canada's preeminent psychiatrists, Vivian Rakoff, MD, CM. Dr. Rakoff was Professor Emeritus and former Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. As the Globe and Mail wrote in his obituary, “He is remembered for his extraordinary intellect, kindness, sense of wonder and the agility with which he wove together ideas from a vast range of disciplines.” Dr. Benoit Mulsant, the current Psychiatry Department Chair, has referred to Dr. Rakoff as "a true giant in our field." Dr. Rakoff was Dr. Greg Dubord's personal psychotherapy mentor for three years in the mid-1990s. Some of Dr. Dubord's reflections on that experience are here.

September 24, 2020.  Today the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto received the single largest gift in Canadian history. Dean Trevor Young has declared the $250 million donation from the Temerty Foundation "transformational". Currently, the University of Toronto's Faculty of Medicine is ranked #6 in the world by Times Higher Education, and #4 in the world by US New & World Report

Accreditation.  CBT Canada was the first organization certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada to offer three-credits-per-hour CME in the Mainpro+ system. In assessing our medical CBT workshops, a senior CFPC accreditation reviewer wrote, "Two words: superlative & exemplary". Three-credits-per-hour CME saves you much time & money over ostensibly "free" one-credit-per-hour CME. The five-year benefit calculations are an eye-opener. 

Medical school workshops during the past year have included Dalhousie (Nov), McGill (Dec), McMaster (Nov), Memorial (Sep), Queen's (May), UAlberta (Oct), UBC (May), UCalgary (Jan), UofT (May) and Western (Sep). A complete list of recent university collaborations is here

Kognitiv atferdsterapi (KAT/CBT) godkjennes som klinisk emnekurs til etterutdanningen med 16 kurspoeng. Just in case you don't speak Norwegian, we'll translate that for you: the three core workshop modules are now accredited for 16 hours each by the Norwegian Medical Association. In other words, the Vikings are coming to Canada... plus we'll have some workshops hosted in Norway in 2022.
