The patient care domain contains the greatest number of competencies of the 7 domains of competence considered by pediatrics. Combined with a historical emphasis on the central nature of patient care to physician practice, it may be tempting to assume the number of competencies in this domain means it is the most important or is sufficient to stand alone. On the contrary, looking beyond patient care to the other domains is essential to meeting the Institute of Medicine goals of providing care that is safe, effective, efficient, patient centered, timely, and equitable.
