Practice Ready Assessment - British Columbia (PRA-BC)

PRA-BC Assessors

We coordinate and deliver a two-day online Assessor Training Workshop to orient and support physicians who serve as assessors of PRA-BC candidates in the 12-week Clinical Field Assessment (CFA).

During these two days, we provide information, resources and support necessary to make the CFA period less stressful and more rewarding.


April 5 - 6th (Fri-Sat)


Our two-day workshop covers:

  • Expectations of PRA-BC assessors and candidates
  • Cultural awareness and sensitivity
  • Use of standardized practice-assessment tools (Field Note, Mini-CEX, etc.)
  • Delivering feedback
  • Challenging conversations
  • Modeling patient-centred care
  • And much more...
