The workshop series for faculty addresses essential core educational topics and skills necessary for success in teaching and learning in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum. Targeting the needs of teaching in the Basic Sciences and Clinical Medicine, these workshops are for basic and clinician scientists, physician educators, attending physicians, preceptors, alumni, residents and staff who seek to prepare themselves for teaching in the Western Reserve2 Curriculum and/or improve their teaching skills. The workshop offerings provide a lively forum for the exchange of ideas and resources. These medical education workshops are available at the School of Medicine, as well as by request from specific hospital sites. Click here for a list of possible workshop topics being offered.
This winter, we are pleased to be able to present a Webcast Audio Seminar Series from the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE).
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 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. 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. 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. The following presentation 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. 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.
