The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's Outcome Project is designed to support programs in their implementation of the competencies in their curricula, as well as the valid and reliable assessment of performance based on these competencies.
Our goal is to provide you with those resources that are available to help you as program directors succeed in this effort and show you what others in your profession have done to address and implement the competencies:
The six competencies are:
- Patient Care
- Medical Knowledge
- Practice Based Learning and Improvement
- Systems Based Practice
- Interpersonal Skills Communication
