Competency-based assessment across the medical education continuum
Competency-based medical education (CBME) requires a vigorous and multidimensional assessment system. In order to successfully implement CBME, assessment processes must be continuous and frequent, criterion-based, developmental, and work-based where possible. As competency-based medical education emerges as the predominant educational paradigm, more collaborative approaches to address the challenges in assessment, and defining best practices are needed.

Attend this American Medical Association webinar and be able to:

1. Recognize challenges in assessing competencies in CBME
2. Discuss efforts to align residency selection practices and CBME with societal, specialty, and program outcomes.
3. Review an example of a nationwide CBME surgery collaborative to ensure practice readiness
