What is the TDM Exam?
The term therapeutics is defined as the application of knowledge in the pharmacological and non-pharmacological management of medical conditions. The TDM Examination aims to assess the competence of candidates at the level required of a family physician practicing independently and safely in Canada. It consists of patient-based scenarios representing common or important clinical presentations and problems that family physicians practicing in Canada should be able to competently manage in the following dimensions of medical care: health promotion and illness prevention, acute illness, chronic illness, and safety and adverse effects.
The examination is comprised of 40 cases with approximately 100 short answer write-in questions. Candidates are allowed up to three hours to complete the examination.
