CAPER vs OPRC Inclusion Criteria

CAPER (Canadian Post-MD Education Registry) and OPRC use the same November 1 census date for their annual reports, but there are differences in how that is applied.

Information Box Group


All residents and fellows who are in active training on the November 1 census day are counted PLUS all trainees who are registered in a training position on November 1, but are absent on that day due to illness or a leave of absence for six months or less.


Only those residents and fellow who are in active training on November 1 are included. Trainees on any kind of leave on November 1 are excluded from the count; regardless of the duration of that leave.
