Evaluating Student Competencies – Lessons Learned from the Medical Profession
Allen Gustin Jr., MD, FCCP – Click Here to view presentation
Calls by the public and policymakers for increased transparency and accountability as well as heightened consumerism have all influenced the shift to a competency-centered, outcomes-based approach to accreditation and the emphasis for accreditors to focus their standards on assessing the degree to which the professions are creating a skilled, competent, and globally competitive workforce. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) began its general competency and outcome initiative in 1998. This initiative, called the Outcome Project, requires that U.S. graduate medical education programs foster resident physicians’ development of competencies in six domains and collect performance data that reliably and accurately depicts residents’ ability to care for patients and to work effectively in health care delivery systems. This presentation will describe the successes and challenges that medical education faced in implementing this reform and the lessons that can be learned by the respiratory care profession.
