Custom Résumé / CV 

CASPer exam 

All applicants to the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Residency Program, at the University of Toronto are required to complete an online assessment (CASPer), to assist with our selection process. Successful completion of CASPer is mandatory in order to maintain admission eligibility.

CASPer is an online test which assesses for non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics that we believe are important for successful students and graduates of our program and will complement the other tools that we use for applicant screening. In implementing CASPer, we are trying to further enhance fairness and objectivity in our selection process.

In order to take CASPer, you will be responsible for securing access to a computer with audio capabilities, a webcam, and a reliable internet connection on your selected test date. CASPer can be taken practically anywhere that you can satisfy the aforementioned requirements. No exceptions will be provided for applicants unable to take CASPer online due to being located at sites where internet is not dependable due to technical or political factors.

Please go to www.takeCASPer.com to sign up for the Canadian Postgraduate Medical Education test (CSP20201) and reserve a test using a piece of government-issued photo ID. You will be provided with a limited number of testing dates and times. Please note that these are the only testing dates available for your CASPer test (you will want to reserve your spot right away). Please use an email address that you check regularly; there may be updates to the test schedule.

Please direct any inquiries on the test to support@takecasper.com. Alternatively, you may use the chat bubble in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen on the takecasper.com website.

The CASPer test is comprised of 12 sections of video and written scenarios. Following each scenario, you will be required to answer a set of probing questions under a time contract. The test typically takes between 75-90 minutes to complete. Each response is graded by a different rater, giving a very robust and reliable view of personal and professional characteristics important to our program. No studying is required for CASPer, although you may want to familiarize yourself with the test structure at takeCASPer.com, and ensure you have a quiet environment to take the test.

CASPer test results are valid for one admissions cycle. Applicants who have already taken the test in previous years will therefore be expected to re-take it.

There are also opportunities to fund residents who wish to pursue a master’s or PhD outside of the CIP program.
  • Many opportunities for residents to initiate and lead advocacy projects.
  • A strong Global Health program, with opportunities to pursue Global Health courses and Global Health opportunities.
  • Numerous opportunities to develop skills in medical education, with opportunities to take teaching courses, teach undergraduate medical students and conduct research.


Program Curriculum

This residency program is for 5 years.

Program length of training does not exceed the Royal College or College of Family Physicians of Canada standard.

Competency By Design (CBD)

In 2019, the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology launched a Competency by Design (CBD) curriculum, under the direction and guidance of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. More information about this curriculum is available here: Competence by Design (CBD). CBD aims to enhance patient care by aligning medical education and lifelong learning with evolving patient needs and empowering learners to more fully engage in their education process. The residency programs is broken down into four training stages, and each stage requires the successful achievement of Entrusted Professional Activities (EPA’s) based upon required competencies.

All programs implementing CBD continue to undergo the same rigorous accreditation processes and continue to lead to Royal College approved certification. Certification for trainees will include the completion of a Royal College examination.

For more information, contact cbd@royalcollege.ca.

Stages of Training

The four stages of Obstetrics & Gynaecology are (with number of blocks*):

  • Transition to Discipline (3 blocks)
  • Foundations of Discipline (23 blocks)
  • Core of Discipline (30 blocks)
  • Transition to Practice. (9 blocks)

Legend: For the following section, please note that each block is (4)-four weeks in length. For reasons of legibility, we have included site abbreviations; the full name of each hospital as well as a link are provided in the Training Sites section below.


PGY1 & PGY2

During PGY1, residents will complete Transition-to-Discipline (TTD) and the first ten blocks of Foundations-of-Discipline (FOD). The remaining FOD rotations will be completed in PGY2. Residents will be assigned a base hospital in PGY1, where they will complete the majority of their rotations; this is to encourage a greater sense of community as they rotate through their off-service rotation requirements.

Rotations include the following (site codes are explained in the Training Site section):

Transition to Discipline (TTD)

  • Transition to Residency (1 block) (various downtown sites)
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology at a major teaching hospital site (1 block) (MSH, SHSC, SMH)
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology at a community hospital site (1 block) (NYGH, MGH, THP-CV)

Foundations of Discipline (FOD)

  • Ambulatory Obstetrics and Gynaecology (1 block) (MSH, SHSC, SMH)
  • Emergency Medicine (1 block) (MGH, SHSC, UHN-TWH)
  • Gynaecologic Oncology (1 block) (SHSC, UHN-PMH)
  • Intensive Care Unit (Medical Surgical) (1 block) (MSH, SHSC, SMH)
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology at a community hospital site (1 block) (NYGH, MGH, THP-CV)
  • Ultrasound (1 block) (MSH, SHSC/NYGH, SMH)
  • Longitudinal Ambulatory Rotation (LAR) (2 half-days per month from Sept to June) (MGH, MSH, NYGH, SHSC, SMH, WCH)
    • During LAR, the PGY1 trainee will work in an obstetrics and/or gynaecology ambulatory clinic two half-days per month from September to June, directly with a faculty member who acts as a preceptor and mentor. Although PGY1s benefit from a wide experience in many specialties during their first year of training, the LAR helps to ensure residents remain connected with their core interest and their colleagues.

The following FOD rotations may occur either in PGY1 or the first three blocks of PGY2:

  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology at a major teaching-hospital site (3 blocks) (MSH, SHSC, SMH)
  • General Surgery (1 block) (MGH, UHN-TWH)
  • Internal Medicine (1 block Clinical Teaching Unit; 1 block Ambulatory Medicine) (MSH, SHSC, SMH)
  • Family Planning (1 block) (WCH and various clinic sites)

During PGY2, residents will continue to complete the FOD stage of their training, spending the bulk of the year on the Core Obstetrics and Gynaecology services, as well as spending a short period of time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and 2 weeks planning a scholarly project.

 

PGY3, PGY4 & PGY5

Core of Discipline (COD)

The COD stage begins in PGY3 and continues until the Royal College (RC) written exam in the fall of PGY5. Training during this stage focusses on subspecialty disciplines and advanced training in core Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

The order of rotations will vary. All residents have exposure to community practice throughout the program. Our residents will pursue a course of training that includes:

  • General Obstetrics and Gynaecology (at major teaching hospitals, community-hospital sites, and endoscopy centres) (4 blocks) (MGH, MSH, NYGH, SHSC, SJHC, SMH, THP-CV)
  • Chief Residency period, focused upon leadership and administration in Obstetrics & Gynaecology (6 blocks total; some may occur in TTP) (MGH, MSH, NYGH, SHSC, SMH, THP-CV)
  • Gynaecologic Oncology (4 blocks) (SHSC, UHN-PMH)
  • Gynaecologic Reproductive Endocrinology, Infertility and Menopause (2 blocks) (MSH)
  • Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology (1 block) (HSC)
  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine (3-4 blocks) (MSH, SHSC)
  • Urogynaecology (3-4 blocks) (MSH, SHSC)
  • Focussed time to work on a Scholarly Project (3 blocks) (site varies)

Transition to Practice (TTP)

TTP is the final stage of training in the residency program and will commence after the RC written exams in the fall of PGY5. This time will be spent consolidating skills in anticipation of independent practice or fellowship, culminating in the Royal College oral exams in the spring.

The remaining 13 blocks are set aside for residents to personalize their residency training during the COD and TTP stages, including up to (3)-three rotations outside of Ontario (includes global health electives). The program offers a number of pre-defined experiences in areas such as Lower Genital Tract Diseases; however, residents can opt to create their own rotation objectives with an approved faculty supervisor. 

Scholarly Project Requirement

During residency training, each resident completes a scholarly project in clinical or education research, Quality Improvement (QI) or basic science, under the guidance of a faculty supervisor. Residents are supported through every stage of the process to ensure they gain training and experience in research methodology, ethics, proposal writing, literature review, data work, writing a manuscript and presentation at the Department’s Annual Research Day. Satisfactory completion of residency training at the University of Toronto requires completion of a scholarly project.

The program encourages residents to attend and present their findings at conferences and meetings through an educational fund set up for each resident. Residents who come to the program with previous research training and/or experience will benefit from the University of Toronto’s extensive network of faculty and staff, as well as leadership and mentorship opportunities.

Residents who would like more focused time to complete scholarly work can choose to pause their clinical training and apply to the Clinician-Investigator Program or other post-graduate programs as approved by the Program Director.
