Medical education is evolving. Traditional classroom learning has migrated to hands-on, active education focused on mastery of key competencies. Competency is defined as “the ability to do something successfully and efficiently,”* and Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) is an approach that ensures learners develop the key competencies required to fulfill patients’ needs. In the future, assessments will be frequent, and based on real-life medical practices (called EPAs – Entrustable Professional Activities).
Competency.AI from Education Management Solutions is a powerful artificial intelligence platform that tracks learner performance across competencies and EPAs, helping institutes manage and measure Competency Based Medical Education curricula. Through interactive dashboards, each student has an individual “learner fingerprint” – ongoing metrics that match delivered curriculum to mastery of key competencies.
