A pilot group of medical schools have been modifying their curriculums to test the implementation of the Association of American Medical Colleges’ (AAMC) Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for Entering Residency. The guidelines, announced by the AAMC in June, are 13 activities new residents are expected to be able to do on their first day.
 
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University, which are participating in the pilot, are using simulations to allow medical students to practice the EPAs before their first day of residency.
