Import EPAs
The EPA Template needs to be completed by all programs. For Canadian PG programs, this template organizes the information about EPAs decided by each national specialty committee and allows the information to be uploaded to Elentra.

Completing the EPA Template

Each program should complete an EPA template with the following information:
    Code: This is the EPA code. It should be recorded in uppercase letters and include the learner stage of training and the EPA number. Use the learner stage letters outlined below to ensure that the EPAs correctly map to other curriculum tags. D: Transition to Discipline F: Foundations of Discipline C: Core Discipline P: Transition to Practice Sample EPA Codes include D1, D2, D3, F1, F2, F3, C1, C2, etc. Note that there is no space between the letter and number in the EPA Code.
    Title: This should be the EPA text. This can be copied from the EPAs as decided by each national specialty committee.
    Detailed Description: In some cases, these may be the same as the EPA title; in other cases, an EPA has an additional description. Not every program will use the ‘Detailed Description’ column. Note that this information is displayed to users in the EPA Encyclopedia.
    Entrustment required (optional): This field is optional but will populate the EPA Encyclopedia which is visible to all users.
Sample EPA Template
Remember to use these codes for the learner stage on all templates:
D: Transition to Discipline F: Foundations of Discipline C: Core Discipline P: Transition to Practice
(The exception to this is if you have a unique CBME setup, e.g. for a UG program.)
