The ACGME requires graduate medical education programs to teach and assess the concept of practice-based learning and improvement (PBLI) to residents. This concept is relatively new to medical education. To create effective PBLI curriculum, keep the following tips in mind:

  • PBLI activities must be interactive
  • Clinical projects must be relevant to the residents’ work environment or practice
  • Identifying a clinical stakeholder for the project choices is critical to maintaining project integrity
  • Taking a team approach to projects is the most effective strategy
  • Faculty and peer presentation of projects helps facilitate learning
  • At least two faculty members with multi-disciplinary backgrounds to oversee the projects is helpful


This week’s tip is adapted from A Practical Guide to Teaching and Assessing the ACGME Core Competencies, published by HCPro, Inc.
