5 - Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries Task Force Evaluating Association of American Medical Colleges Core Entrustable Professional Activities

Monday, May 29
2:05 PM - 2:20 PM
Room: 607

Objectives: To describe the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) task force investigating the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for Entering Residency.

Methods: In May 2014, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) published the Core EPAs for Entering Residency. In response to this change, in the Spring of 2016, AAHSL formed a task force to evaluate how the new Core EPAs will affect the medical school and thus the engagement of librarians in that curriculum. The task force is charged with identifying libraries participating in Core EPA activities, developing a methodology to characterize the nature of participation, and mapping and cross-referencing existing competencies, but specifically focusing on EPA 7 (application of evidence to advance patient care) and EPA 13 (culture of safety and improvement). This paper will report on the results of the Fall 2016 national survey of AAHSL member libraries’ involvement with integrating and assessing Core EPAs into the medical curriculum.
