AMA-GCEP Onboarding Curriculum

Onboarding Quality and Patient Safety Education

The GME Competency Education Platform gives residents tools to develop and measure their knowledge and skills to help meet ACGME competency education requirements. The short courses reduce the time needed for education, thus reducing the stress on residents. Residents can keep track of completed courses and obtain their own printable certificates verifying they passed the post-assessments. Each course contains interactive elements so residents can apply their learning to real-time situations, and automated email due-date reminders keep residents on track. With 24-hour access and content optimized for mobile, residents can complete courses and assessments at their convenience.  Residents can review their current testing status or see detailed reports on completed assignments in their progress file.
