IAMSE Webinar series

CENTILE is pleased to offer the IAMSE Winter 2018 Web Seminar Series: Remediation in Health Science Education

Competency-based Education: Where are we now and where are we going?

The Winter 2018 IAMSE Web Seminar Series focuses on the current state of Competency-Based Education across the health professions and its future directions.

The series begins (Thursday, January 11, 2018) with an overview of current assessment theories, tools and practices and explains how these have been adapted to better reflect learners’ attainment of competency within a competency-based framework. The AAMC Core EPA work group next provides an update on the integration of “entrustment activities and entrustment assessment tools” into a competency-based framework (Thursday, January 18, 2018). This is followed by a session that explores the relationship between memory and learning and describes strategies to better prepare and equip learners to achieve success within a competency-based framework (Thursday, January 25, 2018). The following presentation (Thursday, February 1, 2018) explores the benefits, challenges and outcomes of incorporating Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships (LICs) into competency-based medical education. The series closes with an appraisal of the Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC) curriculum as a content-focused, “continuous” competency-based model that spans undergraduate and graduate medical education (Thursday, February 8, 2018). 

Upon completion of this series, participants will be better able to describe the evolution of competency-based education in the health professions. Participants will also be able to identify opportunities within their own institutions for adopting and adapting a competency-based educational framework. Click to register:
