Boards & Committees

The following boards and committees are organized by the PGME Office. Each board or committee section contains information pertaining to meeting dates, reference materials as well as agendas and minutes.

The Board of Examiners (BOE-PG) is a committee of faculty and residents appointed by the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto. At the request of the Program Director and Vice Dean, Post MD Education, the BOE-PG reviews the cases of residents in academic difficulty and determines the appropriate course(s) of action, which may include remediation, remediation with probation, probation or suspension and dismissal.

The BOE-PG committee meets on a monthly basis usually on the last Friday of each month. A Program Director who would like to bring forward a case to be considered by the committee must notify PGME approximately 4 weeks in advance of the BOE meeting date in the month they wish to bring forward a case (Please see BOE Meeting schedule for deadline dates).
