Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q) is running a two-and-a-half-day training course on competency-based medical education for healthcare leaders and educators from Thursday, September 19 to Saturday, September 21, 2019. The course, titled Assessment in Competency Based Medical Education: A Faculty Development Program, has space for 40 participants and is intended for physicians only, particularly residency and fellowship program directors, associate program directors, and faculty members with responsibility for the assessment of residents/fellows.

The course is being provided through a regional Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) training hub established in Qatar as part of a memorandum of understanding between the ACGME and WCM-Q. The course will feature speakers from ACGME, WCM-Q and Vanderbilt University.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to discuss the implications of competency based medical education, employ tools for effective assessment and feedback, explore key strategies in identifying and remediating a struggling learner, and apply techniques to improve direct observation.
