ABSTRACT:

Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) provide a framework to standardize medical education outcomes and advance competency-based assessment. Direct observation of performance plays a central role in entrustment decisions; however, data obtained from these observations are often insufficient to draw valid high-stakes conclusions. One approach to enhancing the reliability and validity of these assessments is to create videos that establish performance standards to train faculty observers. Little is known about how to create videos that can serve as standards for assessment of EPAs.The...

ABSTRACT:

Introduction
Composing and delivering effective oral case presentations is an important skill for medical students and residents to learn, but the large variety of patients and presenting problems makes teaching and evaluating this skill complex. Few published tools are available for educators to use, and those that are described are not well-studied. The Patient Presentation Rating (PPR) tool can be used to evaluate oral case presentations, and was developed using focus groups of medical school educators from several medical disciplines including pediatrics,...

Thus, central to the ABP’s mission is assurance to the public that a general pediatrician or pediatric subspecialist has successfully completed accredited training and fulfills the continuous evaluation requirements that encompass the 6 core competencies of the Accreditation Council...
