  • Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs): Measuring Readiness for Residency - October 3

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    In this webinar, you will learn in more details what EPAs are, how EPAs have been rolled out in pilot schools, and what it is like to be a student at one of the pilot schools.

    How do we know that a student is ready to begin residency? The AAMC has developed a list of 13 activities—ranging from taking a history to entering orders to performing basic procedures—that students should be ready to perform on the first day of residency without direct supervision. The AAMC selected ten institutions to pilot the Core EPAs and test how to implement EPAs as a way of measuring student progress. 

    In this webinar, you will learn in more details what EPAs are, how EPAs have been rolled out in pilot schools, and what it is like to be a student at one of the pilot schools. This session will feature a 30 minute presentation followed by a time for Q&A.

  • AAMC’s Project CORE Informational Webinar - October 17

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    The AAMC has collaborated with over 20 academic medical centers across the country to implement Project CORE: Coordinating Optimal Referral Experiences.

    The AAMC has collaborated with over 20 academic medical centers across the country to implement Project CORE: Coordinating Optimal Referral Experiences. Through EMR-based eConsults and enhanced referrals, with streamlined clinical workflows and aligned incentives between providers, the CORE model aims to improve quality and efficiency of care at the interface between primary care providers (PCPs) and specialists across the ambulatory setting, while enabling more timely access to specialty care. In just three years at five pilot AMCs, Project CORE delivered:

    • 80% improvement in timely specialty access (within 14 days of the PCP request)
    • 30% improvement in referrals by participating PCPs yielding a specialty visit 
    • $1.5 million average savings per AMC for their Medicare primary care population due to more efficient management between PCPs and specialists

    This webinar will provide an overview of the model and its impact to date. For more information, visit www.aamc.org/projectcore and watch our video. Questions? Contact the Project CORE team, led by Scott Shipman, MD, MPH, Director of Clinical Innovations, at projectcore@aamc.org

    The number of medical school applicants and students who identify as having a disability and who request accommodations is increasing, and it is critical that medical schools have processes in place to meet the needs of these students. Ensuring that medical schools develop an awareness about disability laws, etiquette, and best practices is essential to ensure meaningful access for these learners. To support schools in these efforts, the AAMC invites you to register for this one-hour webinar, which will share effective practices for communicating with and supporting applicants and learners with disabilities as well as approaches to fairly evaluating these applicants. The speakers will also offer suggestions for engaging in conversation that facilitates access and discuss how learners should request accommodations.
