Gastroenterology program directors have a new “toolbox” to help them meet the requirements of the ACGME’s Next Accreditation System (NAS). 
 
The Oversight Working Network, composed of representatives from several liver and gastroenterology societies, has identified thirteen entrustable professional activities (EPAs), the American Gastroenterological Association announced in a press release.
 
The EPAs, core tasks trainees must eventually be entrusted to perform as physicians, can be downloaded at the network’s website. The site also includes assessment tools, such as how to create specific assessments to gauge trainees’ progress along milestones established under the NAS, and a resource library.
 
Gastroenterology programs will begin reporting milestone assessments to the ACGME in November and December this year. In a statement, Suzanne Rose, MD, MSEd, lead author of the project, said the new tools “help educators and trainees supplement their current approach while being able to meet the new requirements in the Next Accreditation System."
