ACGME Core Competencies: A Training Tool for Faculty and Residents
The ACGME requires residency program directors and coordinators to document and assess resident competence in six areas: patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice.
While it is important that residents and faculty understand these competencies, it is difficult to find the time to teach and explain this initiative. You need a video that clearly defines and demonstrates each competency.
Teaching, evaluating and assessing these competencies is no easy task. ACGME Core Competencies: A Training Tool for Faculty and Residents is a valuable tool for residency administrators who must familiarize faculty members, new coordinators, and residents to the core competencies.
ACGME Core Competencies: A Training Tool for Faculty and Residents points out opportunities and tools for competency documentation and assessment through case-based scenarios involving residents and faculty. This video provides you with
- An overview of ACGME’s six general competencies
- Case-based scenarios that demonstrate how each patient interaction provides an opportunity for residents to demonstrate competency
- A resource to help residents understand and comply with ACGME competency requirements
ACGME Core Competencies provides three menu options:
