    When the Milestones were formally implemented in seven specialties in 2013, the ACGME made a commitment at that time to study the validity and impact of the Milestones on GME training. 

    The first five years of Milestone use by residencies and fellowships has catalyzed a number of important quantitative and qualitative studies on the validity and utility of Milestones. Multiple studies have involved either national or multi-institutional Milestone data to study key components of validity. We have learned lessons about what works and what doesn’t, success factors and approaches for residents, helpful and unhelpful characteristics of Milestone design and content, and early lessons about effective clinical competency committees.

    Dr. Stan Hamstra with provide an overview of the research lessons learned to date, with a special emphasis on validity research.
