College of Family Physicians of Canada

Continuing Professional Development Program Award 

Physicians trained in medical CBT report better patient outcomes, less stress, and higher job satisfaction (see). Take your three core modules in whatever sequence you desire. You'll learn to provide much better psychological care within your standard-length appointments. And you'll earn valuable Mainpro-C credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada—wherever you choose to travel.
