Competency Based Medical Education

Communication Samples and Templates

These Newsflash examples and presentations can be used as-is or customized for your own program.

Introduction to CBME

These Newsflash posters and presentations will be especially useful for your learners and faculty as you approach your transition to CBME. Getting the word out as early as you can helps support a smooth transition.

Stages of Training

Residents progress through four stages of learning known as the Competence Continuum. These stages include Transition to Discipline, Foundations of Discipline, Core of Discipline and, finally, Transition to Practice.

EPAs and Assessment

These newsflashes are useful for getting your residents and faculty familiarized with EPAs in their program. It is important to note that the newsflashes on EPAs are especially program-specific, and we are working to make these editable so that you can customize.

Academic Coaches, Faculty, and Resident Supervisors

These newsflashes and presentations will be especially useful to share with your faculty, academic coaches, and senior residents as they apply the principles of coaching in CBD in their roles.
