Point Census vs. Full-Time Equivalent

PMTIO reports are divided into two distinct formats. Two different methods are used to detail information:

POINT CENSUS

Tables in Part 1 of PMTIO reports are compiled using November 1 point census data, and include only those trainees physically present in a training program on November 1 of the given year.  Trainees on any kind of leave (e.g. maternity or parental leave, sick leave, leave of absence, etc.) on November 1 are excluded from the count.

FULL-TIME EQUIVALENT (FTE)

Tables in Part 2 are assembled using data from registrations for the entire academic year (July 1 to June 30 of the given year).  Part 2 tables are referred to as Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) tables. All time spent in a training program has been recorded as the appropriate fraction of full-time equivalent training (FTE).  This is based on both actual and anticipated data, as the data gathered for the November 1 census is used to account for activity through June 30. As a result of this process, a trainee on leave from October 1 to December 31 is not counted in Part 1, but is counted as 0.75 FTE in Part 2.  Please note that as of 2017, FTE is not included as part of the PMTIO report.  If you would like to request this information, please do so here.
