Hogenbirk JC, French MG, Timony PE, Strasser RP, Hunt D, Pong RW - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Within these groups, the study also compares learners in family medicine with those in other specialties.Ethical approval was granted by the Research Ethics Boards of Laurentian University (REB #2010-08-03 and #2012-01-09) and Lakehead University (REB #031 11-12 Romeo File #1462056).Results will be published in peer-reviewed scientific journals, presented at one or more scientific conferences, and shared with policymakers and decision-makers and the public through 4-page research summaries and social media such as Twitter (@CRaNHR, @NOSM) or Facebook.

BMJOPEN2015008246F1: Flow of medical learners through the NOSM as of January 2014 (CFPC, College of Family Physicians of Canada; NOSM, Northern Ontario School of Medicine; PG, postgraduate; PGE, postgraduate entry survey; PGX, postgraduate exit survey; PGY, postgraduate year; RCPSC, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada; UG, undergraduate; UGE, undergraduate entry survey; UGM, undergraduate midway survey; UGX, undergraduate exit survey; UGY, undergraduate year).

Mentions: This prospective comparative longitudinal study follows multiple cohorts from entry into NOSM's UG or PG programmes, and at least 5 years into independent (fully qualified) practice. A purposive sampling strategy invites all NOSM UG and PG medical learners to voluntarily participate in surveys or interviews. Every year, 56 UG students (64 since 2010) are tracked throughout their UG education and into PG residency, when they are joined by additional 40–60 PG residents who are new to NOSM. NOSM UG students are asked to participate in surveys and interviews at the first-year orientation, end of second year, and end of fourth year (figure 1). NOSM PG residents are invited to participate in surveys during orientation and just prior to completion of residency. NOSM UG students who go elsewhere for their PG residency training (30–40 residents per year go to other medical schools for PG training, included in the count of NOSM UGs) are invited to continue their participation in surveys at entry and completion of their residency. To summarise, the study tracks learners who finish (1) their UG education and PG training at NOSM, (2) only their UG at NOSM and go to other schools to complete their PG training or (3) only their PG at NOSM having completed their UG medical education at other schools. These three groups are followed for residents who become family physicians or other specialists (combined) to yield six groups for comparison.
