Educational Objectives

On February 27, 2018, the Executive Curriculum Committee adopted the AAMC-endorsed Physician Competency Reference Set (PCRS) as the core outcomes of the curriculum. While the PCRS reflects desired attributes of practicing physicians, medical students are expected to exhibit the competencies appropriate to their stage of training.

The eight core competencies, as set forth in the PCRS are:  Patient Care, Knowledge for Practice, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Systems-Based Practice, Interprofessional Collaboration, and Personal and Professional Development.
