ABSTRACT:

The authors of “Financing Residency Training Redesign”1 are to be commended as leaders of the exceptional Preparing the Personal Physician for Practice (P4) project funded by the Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors and the American Board of Family Medicine Foundation.2 They have taken the study of residency redesign to an important next level by estimating costs and finding that the cost of innovation represented a small increase above the baseline cost of training.

ABSTRACT:

The Pediatrics Milestones Project is now in its fourth year since the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) original charge to develop milestones-based assessment for the workplace. Collaborative efforts have created the foundation to evaluate a national assessment system to ensure the use of meaningful assessment instruments and to facilitate the implementation of associated faculty development and curricular changes. Building on the past, we look enthusiastically to embark on large-scale research collaboration, necessary to validate the milestones approach to...

Imagine a delineation of physician competencies as recently as 25 years ago. Most prominent would have been those related to medical knowledge. Operating in a Flexnerian1 world, knowledge was valued above all else in evaluating both the learner and the teacher. Hodges2 articulates this concept well in describing the prevailing competence discourse at the time as knowledge discourse, focusing on facts, foundational knowledge, basic science, and fund of knowledge. The learner was guided by classic textbooks and articles and evaluated through multiple-choice...

ABSTRACT:

Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) are gaining traction across the globe as a practical way to teach and assess competencies in the clinical setting. Full-scale implementation, though, has only taken place in obstetrics-gynecology in the Netherlands and in psychiatry in Australia and New Zealand. As with any conceptual framework, implementation in different contexts will require adaptations. For example, implementation in the United States will need to incorporate the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's competencies and the recently completed milestones for each...
