How can physician training be transformed to meet 21st century healthcare needs?

April 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Eric Holmboe, MD FACP FRCP

Senior Vice President, Milestone Development and Evaluation

Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education

Overview: Medical schools and graduate medical education programs are under increasing pressure to transform the ways they prepare their graduates for 21st century healthcare. Outcomes-based medical education using competency frameworks has been embraced globally to help guide medical schools, residencies and fellowships in the transformation process. However, existing and traditional structures and processes may be a barrier to realizing the full promise of an outcomes-based approach. In this session we will explore new concepts and approaches that can facilitate medical education transformation.
Goals: Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe current system challenges impacting on medical education;
  2. Discuss new approaches to medical education and their potential role in transformation;
  3. Discuss impact of educational environment and design and patient outcomes;

Reconsider the medical school to residency continuum and transition.
