Competency-based Residency Training: The Next Advance in Graduate Medical Education.
Long, Donlin M.
Academic Medicine, v75 n12 p1178-83 Dec 2000
Proposes replacing the current approach to medical residents' education, which specifies a fixed time of training, with competency-based training. Reviews the basis of traditional residency training and its problems (both the fixed time and uncertainty of evaluation methods). Discusses the competency-based approach, probability that some residents will finish sooner, the encouraging experience of one program, and evaluating competency. (EV)
