Competency-based Medical Education (CBME) is primarily based on outcome abilities required of physicians that are organized around competencies. It promises greater flexibility, a movement away from time-based training and learner-centeredness. Ideally, highly motivated learners should take less time to meet the outcomes and thus serve the public through less training. Also, if properly constructed, CBME should train better physicians equipped to deal with 21st century patients. In a complex system such as ours, can we deliver on this promise?
This talk will explore problems and progress encountered as the movement sweeps our schools and training programs. We will discuss educational innovations over the last decade that may help us reach our goals.
