Developing Faculty Competencies in Assessment

Assessment is essential to all of education, and graduate medical education is no exception. With the introduction of competency– and outcomes-based education, and with the ACGME’s current accreditation model that includes the Milestones, the urgency for high quality GME programs to meet the needs of learners and the public has grown substantially.

This 3 and 1/2-day course is held at the Amway Grand (a Hilton property) in Grand Rapids, MI with attendance limited to 30 participants. Sessions begin Wednesday at 10 AM and continue through Saturday at 12:30 PM. Target audience includes residency and fellowship program directors, associate program directors, chairs and members of Clinical Competency Committees (CCCs), and any faculty members with major responsibility for the assessment of residents/fellows.

Target audience is faculty seeking to increase their knowledge and skills around the topic of assessment including residency and fellowship program directors, associate program directors, chairs and members of Clinical Competency Committees (CCCs), clerkship directors, and any core teaching faculty with major responsibility for the assessment of residents/fellows/medical students.

Highlights of this highly experiential, hands-on course curriculum include:

  • Goals and principles of CBME
  • Practical application of multiple assessment methods and tools
  • How to create effective assessment systems
  • How to use the Milestones and Entrustable Professional Activities effectively
