Introducing the Virtual Education Committee
In April 2020, the Virtual Education Scientific Planning Committee, an ad-hoc operational committee of the ACFP CPD Advisory Committee was struck in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic continues, it is imperative that the ACFP respond to the continuing medical education and professional development needs of its members by shifting this ongoing work to a standing committee.
The Virtual Education Committee (VEC) is an operational committee of the ACFP Continuing Professional Development Advisory Committee (CPDAC). Since the growth and acceptance of online learning from members, the ACFP has identified that providing alternative modalities for learning will be an added value and complement to its current continuing professional development (CPD) and continuing medical education (CME) programming. The Committee is responsible for the development and delivery of the ACFP’s Virtual Education programming. Committee members must be prepared to have substantial involvement in the development of CPD/CME opportunities and provide timely and responsive guidance to inform decisions on how to fulfill the CME and CPD gaps for members. This is a new standing committee, and we are looking for representation from across Alberta.
Join the VEC
As a newly established committee, and to ensure appropriate committee succession planning, we are offering two Member-at-Large positions for 1, 2, and 3-year terms beginning July 1, 2021.
