Course Description

UCLA has partnered with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to co-sponsor regional faculty development opportunities dedicated to the needs of academic physicians. This focused one-and-a-half-day course is designed to enhance skills in providing meaningful workplace-based performance assessment and feedback to trainees. The first part of the course will review the key concepts of and evidence behind competency-based medical education (CBME). Participants will critically evaluate assessment tools currently in use in their programs with the goal to increase the validity, reliability and utility of assessment. During the second day of the course, faculty will have the opportunity to consolidate concepts learned in the course through simulation exercises that integrate theory and practice during a hands-on session in the UCLA Simulation Center.

Topics/sessions include:

  • Medical Educator Competencies Defined
  • CBME 101: Reliability, Validity and Entrustment
  • Improving Quantity and Quality of Workplace-Based Assessment through Direct Observation 
  • Providing Effective Feedback 
  • Common Challenges in the Clinical Environment: Remediation and Due Process
  • Theory and Practice: Case-Based Simulation (Simulation Center)

Target Audience

The target audience is UCLA faculty at all affiliated institutions, including core teaching faculty, program directors, associate program directors, clerkship directors, and other medical educators, who seek to increase their knowledge and skills in assessment and feedback.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
