Education Evaluation and Research Unit (EERU)
The Education Evaluation and Research Unit (EERU) acts as an organizational hub within the College of Family Physicians of Canada™ (CFPC)’s Academic Family Medicine (AFM) Division, collaborating with researchers and colleagues from across the country. The EERU works to:
- Strengthen AFM Division’s capacity to evaluate educational initiatives
- Develop, implement, and maintain the CFPC’s FM Longitudinal Survey (FMLS) including data sharing/storage, and stewardship policies
- Facilitate the use of evaluation data to inform the work of the CFPC
- Catalyze opportunities to stimulate research that will advance family medicine using the FMLS and other evaluation data

FM Longitudinal Survey (FMLS)
As part of a collaboration between the 17 family medicine residency programs in Canada and the CFPC to evaluate the Triple C Competency-based curriculum, the FMLS was designed as a longitudinal, cross-sectional survey. The survey has been administered annually to family residents and early career family physicians since 2014 at three points in time : Time 1 (entry); Time 2 (exit); Time 3 (three years into practice).The FMLS describes:
- Demographics of family medicine residents
- Family medicine learning experiences
- Perspectives about family medicine as a discipline
- Practice intentions by graduates and choices made in early practice
Access to deidentified FMLS data for research and/or educational purposes can be requested (by approved organizations/affiliations) through a data request process. Requests must be approved by the Triple C Data Oversight Committee (DOC).
