SWAT Seminar Session Topics

Applying Competencies to a Pre-Clinical Curriculum
Laurette Dekat, MD, MPH, Medical Director, Physician Assistant Studies
Jennie Hocking, MPAS, PA-C, Associate Director, Physician Assistant Studies

In 2004, the Physician Assistant (PA) profession adopted the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies for didactic and clinical year teaching/evaluation. This interactive session will demonstrate how to integrate the competencies into the existing syllabi and learning outcomes in the preclinical/didactic curriculum. Attendees are encouraged to be prepared to discuss the use of competency-based education in their respective programs.

Applying Competencies to a Clinical Curriculum
David J. Klocko, MPAS, PA-C, Associate Professor, Physician Assistant Studies

This interactive session will demonstrate how to integrate ACGME competencies into student clinical evaluations and into rotation goals and objectives. Attendees are encouraged to be prepared to discuss the use of competency-based education in their respective programs.

Integrating Milestones in a Competency-based Curriculum
Lynne Kirk, MD, Professor, Internal Medicine, Family & Community Medicine
Holder of the Tim and Toni Hartman Professorship in Medicine

Once the outcomes have been defined for a competency-based curriculum, milestones can be developed that describe the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that the learners will be able to demonstrate along the continuum of education and training. Dr. Kirk will present examples of nationally-developed milestones for internal medicine residency training. Attendees will define milestones for learners in their areas in medicine, the health professions, and biomedical sciences at undergraduate and graduate levels.

Competencies and the Reprise and Synthesis of Basic science and Clinical Medicine: Is it possible?
Andrew Zinn, MD, PhD, Professor, Associate Dean for the Medical Scientist Training Program
Joseph Albanesi, PhD, Professor, Pharmacology

Drs.  Zinn and Albanesi will discuss mechanisms for introducing, extending, and utilizing pre-clinical basic science concepts into the clinical years of medical school.
