Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) and the Chicago-based Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) teamed up to run a two-and-a-half-day training course on competency-based medical education for healthcare leaders and educators.
The workshop, developed by WCM-Q’s Division of Continuing Professional Development in association with Innovations in Global Health Professions Education (IGHPE), helped the 42 physicians and educators in attendance develop enhanced assessment skills, with sessions on key concepts and theories in professional development and learning, advanced assessment and feedback tools, identifying and remediating struggling learners, and apply techniques to improve direct observation.
The course was coordinated jointly by WCM-Q’s Division of Continuing Professional Development, ACGME and Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) of Nashville, Tennessee, and was facilitated by IGHPE, a global forum for the presentation and discussion of innovative concepts in health professions education. The visiting expert speakers were Dr Eric Holmboe, chief of Research, Milestones Development and evaluation officer at the ACGME, Dr Sandra A Moutsios, assistant professor of Internal Medicine and Paediatrics and director of the Internal Medicine-Paediatrics Residency Programme at VUMC.
WCM-Q speakers at the event included Dr Thurayya Arayssi, senior associate dean for Medical Education and Continuing Professional Development.
She said, “Learners rely very heavily on feedback and assessment to attain the competencies they need to eventually provide high-quality care to their patients, so these are very important skills for anyone involved in providing competency-based medical education. We are delighted that our colleagues from the ACGME and Vanderbilt University contributed their wonderful expertise to this highly successful course.”
The other WCM-Q staff and faculty who also spoke at the event were Deema al Sheikhly, Dr Amal Khidir, Dr Amine Rakab and Dr Sumeja Zahirovic.
