ABSTRACT:

The domain of personal and professional development was constructed as a new domain of competency on the basis of the Association of Pediatric Program Directors' (APPD) input during an ethnographic inquiry1 at the 2009 fall APPD meeting. This new domain encompasses both individual aspects of professional formation, characterized as the development of professional values, actions and aspirations,2 as well as overarching concepts of global professional attributes, such as trustworthiness. In a brief glance at the 8 competencies within this new domain, one will observe that these...

ABSTRACT:

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...

ABSTRACT:

This supplement to the Pediatrics Milestone Project marks a milestone for the project itself. It allows us to archive the milestones' first iteration in our communities' peer review literature and facilitate our ability to acquire more meaningful information about how these milestones have impacted the community at large. By tracing citations to the individual articles representing each domain, its competencies, and their milestones over time, we will learn what the community is paying attention to and what they are not, as well as how others are improving upon and advancing this work. We...

ABSTRACT:

In this issue of Pediatrics Schumacher et al1 provide an analysis of the resource domains needed to implement the Pediatrics Milestones into residency training. While noting the promise of Pediatrics Milestones “for developing a valid . . . way to track residents’ development and provide a roadmap for their learning,” the authors question the ability of training programs to marshal necessary resources. Faculty raise similar concerns with variants of the following questions: Why change (from the current training and assessment system)? What is the evidence (that milestone...
