Mission statement: “To provide the facility for every CAGS member to fully meet their individual CME requirements and re-certification obligations”
Sept. 18, 2013
Short Term Goals:
- Volunteers stemming from the Membership survey would be contacted for Committee work.
- CAGS would be applying to the Royal College for the five-year accredited provider status in April 2014.
- More was needed to ensure a good evaluation process to provide feedback for the Royal College and the evaluation process would be revised
- New guidelines had been introduced by the Royal College about commercial relationships and a disclosure standard asking members from the Program Committee to provide conflict of interest documents.

The CPD Mission statement was revalidated: “To provide the facility for every CAGS member to fully meet their individual CME requirements and re-certification obligations”.
Short term goals
1) Continue to support ASAP for consistency with more volunteers.
2) Create on-line educational resources (bariatric surgery, e-physician health, helpful links, teaching tools)
3) Develop a Post Graduate Course or programming for community surgeon at the CSF.
Long term goals
1) Distribute a needs assessment that can be circulated through the provinces to reach all General Surgeons, including non-CAGS members and ask if they will take CAGS exam, if they would like a Post Graduate Course at the CSF, a communication workshop, and what procedures they do to address unperceived needs.
2) Development of the practicing surgeon via the CAGS exam. This will have to be explored by the CAGS Test Committee.
