ABSTRACT:

Competency-based medical education holds the promise of producing a better-trained workforce — and for many physicians, this training could be accomplished within a shorter time frame.

ABSTRACT:

The Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC) Study Group is developing the first competency-based, time-variable progression from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME) in the history of medical education in the United States. EPAC, an innovation project sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and supported by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, was developed through a collaboration between five medical schools and multiple professional organizations with an interest in undergraduate and graduate medical education. The planning...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose 
To begin closing the gap with respect to quality measures available for use among residents, the authors sought to identify and develop resident-sensitive quality measures (RSQMs) for use in the pediatric emergency department (PED) setting.

Method 
In May 2016, the authors reviewed National Quality Measures Clearinghouse (NQMC) measures to identify resident-sensitive measures. To create additional measures focused on common, acute illnesses (acute asthma exacerbation, bronchiolitis, closed head injury [CHI]) in the PED...

ABSTRACT:

One challenge to research in the education of pediatric fellows is the need for large sample sizes so that innovative approaches can be assessed adequately and results are meaningful. Furthermore, trainees need to be evaluated in different educational settings to understand what works well in which environment, and why or why not. In addition, the information provided by studies with a limited number of programs may not be generalizable throughout the subspecialty or to other subspecialties. This is especially true for the pediatric subspecialties in which the number of trainees is...

ABSTRACT:

Purpose
Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) represent the routine and essential activities that physicians perform in practice. Although some level of supervision scales have been proposed, they have not been validated. In this study, the investigators created level of supervision scales for EPAs common to the pediatric subspecialties and then examined their validity in a study conducted by the Subspecialty Pediatrics Investigator Network (SPIN).

Method
SPIN Steering Committee members used a modified Delphi process to develop...
