Focus Session: Entrustable Professional Activities – Implications for the Preclinical Faculty and Curriculum
Time: Sunday, June 9 from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Speakers: Carrie Chen, Jessica Jones and Ming-Jung Ho – Georgetown UniversityThere is increasing interest in the use of entrustable professional activities (EPAs) to define and assess competencies in health professions education. Individual schools, as well as national organizations in multiple countries, have begun defining and adopting EPAs for undergraduate medical education. Typically these initiatives engage faculty in the clinical curriculum and focus on learning and assessment in the workplace. Yet an effective competency framework must engage faculty throughout the curriculum and address the preclinical as well as clinical curriculum. The goal of this focus session is to consider the roles of the preclinical faculty and the preclinical curriculum within an EPA context. Participants will discuss and proactively develop potential leadership roles for the preclinical faculty to effectively engage in and lead EPA implementation efforts to ensure the ongoing relevance of the classroom curriculum.
• Discuss the concept of entrustment and its application to classroom learning and assessment
• Develop strategies to incorporate entrustment into preclinical course expectations
• Analyze opportunities for improved partnership with the clinical curriculum within an EPA framework
• Engage in institutional conversations and help lead EPA implementation efforts at their home institutions
