This workshop will focus on use of competency-based education as a means for optimizing physician preparation. By attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Better understand the basic tenets of Competency-Based Medical Education (CBME). 
  • Identify benefits and challenges to CBME development and assessment. 
  • Recognize the value of a “milestones” framework for defining educational outcomes. 
  • Access a toolkit of instructional design tips to guide course planning and delivery. 
  • Engage in more meaningful and manageable course planning and assessment. 

Come and explore the characteristics of competency-based medical education (CBME) and how it compares with more traditional medical school approaches. Examples of CBME implementation will be reviewed along with a discussion of implications for course planning, instructional delivery and assessment.
