The Coalition for Physician Accountability: UME-GME Review Committee
Presenter: Elise Lovell, MD
Session: February 25, 2021 at 12pm Eastern Time
Over the past few years, increasing attention has been devoted to identifying trends negatively impacting the UME-GME transition. InCUS (Invitational Conference on USMLE Scoring) laid important ground work for the efforts ahead. The decision to change the scoring of the USMLE Step I examination to pass/fail has accelerated the timeline for solutions, and the UME-GME community is energized to more comprehensively improve the UME-GME transition for all stakeholders. In follow-up to InCUS, the Coalition for Physician Accountability convened a UME-GME Review Committee (UGRC) in September 2020 with a one year charge to develop recommended solutions to identified challenges in the UME-GME transition. The UGRC is to act with transparency, consider stakeholder engagement, and utilize data when available. Assuring learner competence and readiness for residency, wellbeing, and equity are primary goals.
