New Academic Medicine Papers on Competency-based, Time-variable Education

New York, NY

In “Competency-Based, Time-Variable Education in the Health Professions: Crossroads”—a new Academic Medicine supplement—experts explore what it will take to transition to an education system in which students advance at their own pace, as they master a set of specific concepts and skills.

These articles build on the set of recommendations issued by Macy last year to guide health professions educators and accreditors in building toward a competency-based, time-variable education system.

We hope you read the articles and use the information to inform your own efforts to move away from the traditional fixed-time model of education.
