Association of American Medical Colleges


The Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for entering residency initiative was undertaken to improve public health by addressing the gap between program directors’ expectations and new residents’ performance on day one of residency. This resource contains a presentation about, and guides to the entering residency initiative. The guide is provided in two versions: one for developers and the other for faculty/learners.


  1. To delineate the core EPAs that every MD resident should be able to do on day 1 of residency without direct supervision, regardless of specialty.

  2. To engage AAMC constituents in a pilot to develop curriculum, assessment, and faculty development for the EPAs.
