Involvement in this committee is a large responsibility as many documents pertaining to the university under assessment must be reviewed and evaluated. The junior rep will sit with the senior rep on this committee. (Student Representative cannot be from the same University as the University that will do the Accreditation in the coming year. Hence no applications from University of Manitoba can be accepted this year. CACMS prefers a 1st or 2nd year student.)|

|Health Human Resource Task Force||10||N||The new Health Human Resource Task Force represents the response of the CFMS to increasing concerns regarding the siloed approaches to Physician Resource Planning (PRP) and the broader Health Human Resources (HHR) in Canada. The HHR Task Force is an expansion of the Atlantic Task Force (ATF) that has pioneered Physician Resource Planning work for the Atlantic provinces creating a report called "Prospective Outlook on Atlantic Physician Workforce” to be published in December 2019. The ATF has also been extensively collaborating with all key stakeholders involved in PRP both provincially and nationally as they recognized that this work is a common issue to multiple stakeholder in our Candian Health care system. These interactions have shaped the strategy and direction of the ATF work leading to the creation of the CFMS HHR Task Force. The first project of the HHR Task Force will be to digitalize the ATF report and expand data collection to create a national online interactive platform to centralize the most relevant data/statistics of the current and projected physician workforces, by province, specialty, year and source of data. The interface will likely be depiction of every province and territory of Canada to simply illustrate the right mix, regional distribution and number of health care workers needed by our society. We foresee this platform to be of tremendous potential for providing a common medium of communication and collaboration between medical students and provincial health authorities (along with the other stakeholders involved in HHR). This will enable medical students to make an informed and socially accountable decision when choosing a specialty. |
Our mission is to collaborate to modernise health human resource strategy towards an integrated health care system to provide accessible and personalized health services to every Canadian. There is tremendous potential for this HHR platform to enable stewardship between all levels of the physician workforce, our patient population, government, and the workforces of all health-related diciplines. Further details can be found in the ATF project description (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1riuhRo77nXHJT0olwm0QApKgG-vdwKDeBc7NyhSXyeA/edit?usp=sharing) and in the unofficial Terms of Reference for the HHR Task Force (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1r5_29lGS1_X7Yu_JRNtaXWiBwHHOWytzZmRT_7GUyOA/edit).
Applicants will be selected based on the external marking of the answers to the questions provided in the application form. Particular consideration will be given to applicants with previous experience in any of HHR strategy (member of the Atlantic Task Force or committee focusing on HHR, past academic or work experience in Public Health/Health Policy/Human Resources...), physician forecast models (design or implementation), physician resource plans, artificial intelligence/data analytics, communication/collaboration with national or international NFP organisations/governments. Please elaborate on these experiences in connection with the upcoming work of the HHR Task Force.
