With millennials becoming the generation that makes up the largest population of medical learners, researchers from the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine examined their learning preferences and how well they synced up with the competency-based medical education (CBME) framework consisting of Milestones and entrustable professional activities. Earlier studies have found that millennials are less self-reliant than prior generations but have a greater need for perfectionism, rules, emotional stability, feedback, interaction with peers, and feeling a sense of accomplishment with their work. Based on that, the researchers found that the CBME framework aligned well with millennials due to its attention to transparency, personalized training, and continuous assessment.
