Educational Competencies Objectives

 

In the spring and summer of 1998, the Medical School Objectives Committee, department chairmen, and the Curriculum Committee adopted educational objectives for the program leading to the M.D. degree. These were very similar to those adopted by the Medical School Objectives Project of the Association of American Medical Colleges and described the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes believed necessary for the practice of medicine in the 21st century.

In the spring of 2006, the Curriculum Committee revised and reorganized the objectives into a competency framework.

In the spring of 2011 the Curriculum Committee revised and reorganized the objectives to improve alignment with the ACGME core competencies. This document was adopted by the Executive Committee for Education and Curriculum on April 6, 2011. The six core competencies follow, each explained in more detail in this document.
