Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC)
What is Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC)?
The Education in Pediatrics Across the Continuum (EPAC) project is an exciting pilot to test the feasibility of medical education and training that is based on the demonstration of defined outcomes rather than on time, from early in medical school through completion of residency. The pilot project started in the Fall of 2013 at four medical schools across the country: San Francisco, Utah, Colorado, and Minnesota. These schools are working in collaboration with the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC), the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), and the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP). EPAC received a grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation to support the pilot project.
“To create a model of medical education and training seamlessly spanning the UME/GME continuum which is focused on each learner’s individual achievement of the defined competencies and milestones which constitute the professional activities of a pediatrician.” -- AAMC
