ABSTRACT:

Role of the American Board of Pediatrics
The American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certifies general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists based on standards of excellence that lead to high-quality health care during infancy, childhood, adolescence, and the transition into adulthood. 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...

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.

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...
