This webinar will lay the foundation for future sessions in this series. We will discuss the definition and define the common terms that are used in competency-based medical education (CBME). The reasons for why we need to change our current education system, and how CBME may address these, will be discussed. We will describe the five components of CBME and models for implementing this new education paradigm across the continuum of medical education.
Dr Lomis, on behalf of the national pilot group, will briefly review the background of the AAMC Core EPAs for Entering Residency initiative and will summarize recent activities of the national pilot group. Guiding principles for implementation will be elucidated, and areas of ongoing development and study will be discussed.
