CAME invites you to join them for their webinar sessions, designed to bring practical, evidence and experience based advice to Canadian health educators. The webinars are delivered by CAME using the Zoom platform, allowing full audio and visual communication and interaction between presenter and participants. The webinars offer an exciting opportunity to engage online with an expert and with colleagues in a live discussion on a key topic in medical education.



Presenter: Dr. Gisèle Bourgeois-Law, University of British Columbia

Biography: Having lived a career as a Jane-of-all-trades (Family Physician, Specialist Obstetrician- Gynecologist, Associate Dean CME/CPD in 2 different universities, Site Coordinator Physician Assistant students, Director of a Clinician Assessment and Enhancement Program, Acting Head of the Department of Medical Education,  Acting Director of the Evaluation Studies Unit) Gisèle Bourgeois-Law finally decided it was time to focus and obtained her PhD in Health Professions Education through Maastricht University in 2020. With her supervisory ‘dream team’ of Glenn Regehr, Pim Teunissen and Lara Varpio, she explored how we conceptualize remediation for clinical competence.

Overview: When progress is meant to be competency, and not time-based, when does a learner’s slower trajectory become worrisome and remediation called for? What exactly is remediation and how do our learners think about it? Why is it such a challenge for all concerned? This webinar will explore the nature of remediation in the context of CBME, the challenges it poses for teachers and learners, and how medical education ‘culture’ can facilitate or impede addressing those challenges.


***Please note there will be two presentations***

Delivery 1: 12:00pm-1:00pm ET
Delivery 2: 3:00pm-4:00pm ET


Zoom link will be sent the morning of February 15, 2022


At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss how our conceptualizations of remediation affect how we address performance concerns in learners.
  • Describe the challenges remediation can pose to learners
  • Identify the role of medical education culture in remediation challenges and possible ways to mitigate those challenges without necessarily having to ‘change the culture’.
