Lifelong Learning: Physician Competency Development

Based on the work of the Regional Policy Boards and the Advisory Group on Physician Competency Development the PLF developed recommendations to the field and published them as a white paper Lifelong Learning: Physician Competency Development in June 2012. An excerpt was published in the Journal of Graduate Medical Education in September 2012.

As part of the process, AHA, along with ACGME, convened a meeting of stakeholders in medical education and training to discuss ways we might collaborate to advance the competencies in the health care delivery system. The meeting included a roundtable of the efforts already underway at the invited organizations and an in-depth discussion of how to instill greater “systemness” in the education and training of physicians.
