LSU School of Medicine Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) members have instituted a new Core Curriculum for LSU House Officers. The American Medical Association’s series of GME competency modules for residents and fellows will be required. These modules will be the integral educational component of residency and fellowship programs.
The lessons are to be completed during the first, second, and third year of training. Completion of the modules is MANDATORY for promotion to the next house officer level and graduation. For more information, visit the American Medical Association’s GME Competency Education Program website.
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 devices, 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. Program training sessions and access to the educational modules are coming soon from the GME Office.
Quality and Safety Curriculum – The Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Open School Curriculum
Eight IHI Open School modules on quality and patient safety have been added to the Core Curriculum. IHI Open School brings essential training and tools to an online, educational community that helps residency programs and their teams deliver excellent, safe care. When programs engage with the Open School courses and Chapters, they join more than 500,000 learners from universities, organizations, and health systems around the world in building core skills in improvement, safety, and leadership.
