New era for internal-medicine residents


This study in JAMA Internal Medicine analyzes the new era for residency training in internal medicine.

It concludes:

“Internal medicine residents should learn to deliver high-quality, cost-effective, equitable care that is patient-centered as well as to function as part of an inter-professional team. Residents should accomplish these goals while being responsible for an ever-expanding evidence base in the setting of universal and immediate access to medical information by their patients. Although the challenges are formidable, the current educational reform efforts should create the opportunities for this learning to occur. A competency-based assessment system should assure faculty as well as the public that residency programs in internal medicine are producing the best doctors for the 21st century.”
