TRAINING COURSE GOAL

The purpose of the C-CAT Conference and Certification program is to harmonize and improve quality standards for competent, independent practice as a medical expert within the specific area of Ontario Catastrophic determinations. The Certification Program assesses the minimal competencies necessary to practice as a medical legal expert in this field. The Certification Program is intended to be complementary to national standards of competence within a specific health care specialty, and enhance the competent, ethical, and professional practice as a medicolegal expert. The C-CAT is not intended to replace any existing College or Board regulatory functions, but rather to augment those processes. The vision for the C-CAT is to be recognized as the standard of quality for medicolegal experts undertaking these evaluations in accordance with Ontario law.
