Taking a medical history and collaborating with an interprofessional team are a few activities residents should be able to perform on their first day, according to new guidelines from a group of GME experts.  

This week, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) released Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPA) for Entering Residency, in response to program directors’ concerns about trainee preparedness. The document describes 13 activities residents should be entrusted to perform immediately without direct supervision, regardless of specialty. 

The EPAs are the first formal guidelines describing what medical students should be able to do when they enter residency, according to the AAMC. Two versions of the guidelines, one for curriculum developers and another for faculty and learners, are available as PDF downloads at the AAMC’s website.
