Monday, January 8, 2018 - 07:45

The New England Journal of Medicine has published a perspective article featuring the American Board of Pediatrics Vice President, Dr. Carol Carraccio and her colleague, Dr. Deborah E. Powell. The piece outlines the recent evolution of competency-based medical education in pediatric training models and highlights the need for a more flexible training approach and timelines.

While the standards of education remain rigorous, the required timeframe in which to train and assess trainees may vary. The authors also stressed the importance of the continuum of education and proper assessment.

Carraccio and Powell encourage the innovative model of competency-based medical education and its positive impact on patient-centered care.
