The CAG Podcast program is an educational initiative that offers bite-sized, on-demand, informal education. This program is part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program of the CAG and is primarily intended to meet the educational needs of the CAG membership, including Adult and Pediatric Gastroenterologists, Basic Scientists, and Trainees.

 

Under the leadership of CAG Education Affairs, we are committed to providing an educational environment that fosters the lifelong professional development of its members through diverse learning opportunities and programs that promote, enhance, and expand their clinical, scientific, and procedural skills, as well as facilitating opportunities for self-directed assessment and learning to ultimately enhance patient care and improve gastrointestinal health outcomes. 

 

Please note that all CAG Podcast program material is peer-reviewed and that listening to episodes is considered a Section Two Scanning Activity by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Maintenance of Certification program. Each episode is valued at 0.5 Section Two Credits.

 


All CAG Podcast program episodes are located in our Members Only section of the website.
