ECFMG-ACGME Webinar: Core Competencies and Milestones
The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) establishes educational standards and common program requirements for all ACGME-accredited training programs in the United States. The ACGME has identified six Core Competencies to be used by accredited graduate medical education (GME) programs to evaluate their residents and fellows. Learn the importance of these Core Competencies and the Milestones that guide residents and fellows. This webinar is a “must-see” for anyone entering an ACGME-accredited GME program or planning to apply for a residency position through ERAS.
Laura Edgar, Executive Director for Milestones Development and Medical Genetics, ACGME, covers the following topics:
- What are the fundamentals of the ACGME?
- What are the ACGME Core Competencies and Milestones?
- What is expected of residents in training in the context of ACGME’s Core Competencies?
- How is a resident’s performance measured in the Milestones?
