Entrustable Professional Activities: Why, What, How, and So What?
Surgeons, advanced practice providers, fellows, residents, and medical students in various surgical specialties and subspecialties need to receive regular updates on advances in surgical care and clinical practices. Novel technologies and procedures will be examined as means to improve the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions requiring surgical intervention. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners, enhance surgical skills, increase surgical efficiency, disseminate surgical best practices, and improve surgical outcomes.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Describe how entrustable professional activities (EPAs) will contribute to a competency based training paradigm in surgery.
