ABSTRACT:

I am fortunate to receive an award connected to the legacy of Dr Joseph W. St Geme, Jr, a teacher and mentor to so many in the pediatrics community. Parker Palmer,1 author of The Courage to Teach, once said, “Good teachers are able to weave a web of complex connections among themselves, their subjects, and their students so that students can learn to weave a world of connections for themselves.” The esteem in which Dr Joseph W. St Geme, Jr, is held by those who worked with and learned from him suggests that he was a master at creating these connections.

The system provided: (1) web-based multisource feedback (MSF) and structured clinical observation (SCO) instruments that could be completed on any computer or mobile device; and (2) monthly feedback reports that included competency-...

ABSTRACT:

The paradigm shift to competency-based medical education (CBME) is under way, but incomplete implementation is blunting the potential impact on learning and patient outcomes. The fundamental principles of CBME call for standardizing outcomes addressing population health needs, then allowing time-variable progression to achieving them. Operationalizing CBME principles requires continuity within and across phases of the education, training, and practice continuum. However, the piecemeal origin of the phases of the "continuum" has resulted in a sequence of undergraduate to graduate medical...
