Mapping Competencies: Using the Physician Competency Reference Set
MedEdPORTAL Publications' DREAM (Directory and Repository of Educational Assessment Measures) Collection contains peer-reviewed assessment analyses and copies of assessments linked to PCRS, which makes it a valuable resource as schools map their competencies in their curriculum and begin to look for ways to assess the competencies they are mapping.
Call for Submissions: LGBT and DSD Patient Care Project
LGBT and DSD-affected individuals face well-documented disparities when interacting with the health care system including: poorer access to needed care, bias and discrimination, a lack of provider knowledge and/or comfort in providing care, absent or suboptimal risk factor assessment, and medical management that is not grounded in the current best evidence. These disparities can lead to unnecessary and preventable negative health outcomes. To support efforts to overcome these disparities, MedEdPORTAL seeks developed curricula and assessments, best practices and continuing education focused on optimizing learners’ acquisition of the competencies and abilities to provide comprehensive care for these populations.
