AAIM and ABIM co-hosted a summit February 11-12 in Alexandria, VA, to bring subspecialty societies to a common understanding in regard to fellowship milestones. Representatives from ABIM, ACGME, and AAIM presented updates on their own efforts in preparation for the launch of NAS, while everyone acquired a common vocabulary and understanding through an overview of competency-based medical education. Presentations from subspecialties already immersed in milestone development and pilot projects—American Association for the Study of Liver Disease, American College of Cardiology, and the American Geriatrics Society—provided information about the collaborative process, barriers, and implementation plans as well as offered a broad range of approaches and resource utilization. Subspecialty based small group discussions helped generate commonalities in several competencies. AAIM will remain at the forefront of this work, uniting the academic internal medicine community as it prepares for NAS.
