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

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.
