A competency-based approach to family medicine (FM) postgraduate (PG) training falls short of a holistic process if it focuses only on patients’ needs without eliciting those of trainees. This study was aimed at identifying perceived competency deficits of trainees and challenges hindering achievement of the learning outcomes of their training. Critical appraisal and utilisation of scientific knowledge should be part of every stage of the African FM trainee’s learning experience. To achieve this and other learning outcomes, improving mentor–mentee relationships is essential.
