Best Practices in
Education Rounds

Program Objective

Best Practices in Education Rounds (BPER): Integrating Stories and Science link the theory and practice of health professions education and faculty development with invited speakers from local, national and international contexts.

Program Description

Best Practices in Education Rounds (BPER) are co-hosted by the Centre for Faculty Development, The Wilson Centre and the Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare & Education (CACHE). We leverage the expertise that exists between our Centres to facilitate a more impactful offering.

BPER provides the opportunity to share innovative and emerging ideas with a wide audience of interested health professional teachers, educators, leaders, and scholars. BPER aims to reach a diverse audience, including patient/client and family partners and a range of professional/health worker backgrounds.

Program Structure

Rounds are held monthly (second Tuesday of each month) throughout the academic year and are offered virtually via Zoom. They are freely accessible for anyone to attend.  Please click here to see our upcoming offerings.  Registration is required. Recordings of past offerings are saved in our BPER Archive.

BPER Reads is our annual “Battle of the Papers” each February.  Invited scholars champion the one paper of the past academic year they feel every health professional educator must read.   Voting opens in October and each month the paper with the lowest number of votes is eliminated.   At BPER Reads in February, the champions of the final two papers battle it out for the title of ‘best paper’.


For each BPER:
This one-credit-per-hour Group Learning program meets the certification criteria of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and has been certified by Continuing Professional Development, Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto for up to 1.0 Mainpro+ credits.


This event is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, approved by Continuing Professional Development, Temerty Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. You may claim a maximum of 1 hour (credits are automatically calculated).
