ADMSEP Virtual Spring Town Hall, Wednesday March 20th, 4p-530p EST.

“Where Do We Go from Here? Development and Adoption of the New Foundational Core Competencies for Undergraduate Medical Education.”

Dr. Lisa Howley from the AAMC will present on the new competencies and hear our feedback.

A calendar invitation will be arriving in an email to follow.

The medical education community has been working towards competency-based education for decades. However, much work remains to align undergraduate and graduate medical education and enhance the transition to residency. An initiative led and advised by multiple medical education organizations has recently resulted in new foundational competencies for undergraduate medical education in the U.S. regardless of location or degree type. This interactive session will introduce the new foundational competencies for undergraduate medical education. The multi-year collaborative effort to develop them will be briefly reviewed and the attendees will be invited to ideate strategies to integrate them within their local educational programs.

Link to competencies:

1. Defend the need for a standard set of foundational competencies across UME programs, that align with GME.
2. Describe the foundational UME competencies that align across the continuum, and the process used to develop them.
3. Construct one or more actions towards local adoption of the new foundational competencies
