Improving Ensuring the lifelong learning of all physicians O nce a physician is registered by the College to practise medicine, we have a duty to ensure that he or she maintains competence throughout his or her career. Supporting physicians in their decision-making and lifelong learning helps Ontario doctors and, ultimately, their patients. To better understand where a physician can improve, we begin with assessments. The College is committed to ensuring that every physician is assessed once in a 10-year cycle.
