What: The Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) are collaborating to co-sponsor a faculty development course promoting and enhancing faculty skills in the clinical assessment of residents in the workplace.  

Based off the successful six-day course by the same name, this three-day course will explore competency-based or outcomes-based medical education with hands-on activities to develop faculty competencies in assessment. Participants will employ multiple assessment tools and strategies, including an experiential component developing skills in feedback, coaching and direct observation. There will be short theory bursts and then small group discussion activities to apply the material as it is presented.

The intent of the course is to focus on faculty skill development and to have the opportunity to practice applying all the concepts presented and discussed within the course.

When: Wednesday afternoon, 1 p.m. Sept. 20, 2023 through Saturday noon, Sept. 23, 2023
