The Operative Word from JACS Looks at Core Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency

The training and preparation needed for success in surgery residency is demanding – but are graduating medical students pursuing surgery able to perform the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Core Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency?

In this episode, Operative Word host Jamie J. Coleman, MD, FACS, is joined by Dorothy Andriole, MD, FACS, surgeon and AAMC senior director of medical education research, and Jonathan Amiel, MD, professor of psychiatry and senior associate dean for innovation in health professions education at Columbia University in New York. They discuss their recent study, which found that many graduating students intending to enter surgery agreed they had skills to perform some, although not all, activities.
