AAIM is the only organization that can address education redesign issues from the clerkship through the fellowship and across all the specialties.  This breadth is vital to addressing stakeholder concerns such as those expressed by MedPAC and other external entities as well as the internal critiques of medical education authored by AAIM, its component groups, and others within the internal medicine community.  To that end, the AAIM Board of Directors has identified education redesign as its number one policy priority. 

As part of that effort, the education redesign task force has been elevated to a committee.  Building on the efforts of the two previous education redesign task forces, the committee will expend its efforts in three areas:

  • Determine competency components and performance levels
  • Develop tools to evaluate competence
  • Apply competencies and tools in training

 ACGME Agrees to “Phase-In” Reporting of Milestones for NAS

In response to concerns from the program director community, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine (RRC-IM) agreed to a “phase-in” period for the reporting of milestones.  Program directors will only have to report data on residents once during the first year of implementation of the Next Accreditation System (NAS), and must do so by June 2014.  The original deadline was December 2013.  For all subsequent years, programs will provide milestones on a semiannual basis as part of NAS.  According to ACGME, the transitional period is designed to allow program directors to familiarize themselves with the new reporting process.

 February 21, 2013 - Academic Internal Medicine Stakeholders Discuss NAS Transition and Implementation

 

In preparation for the July 2013 launch of the Next Accreditation System (NAS), the Internal Medicine Education Redesign Advisory Board met February 13 to address the upcoming transition.  During the meeting, participants discussed the release of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) 22 internal medicine reporting milestones and addressed concerns about semiannual reporting.  In addition, advisory board members evaluated ways in which the medicine community can assist program and fellowship directors in reporting milestones to ACGME.   These efforts will include acting as a resource for specialties and subspecialties, and providing access to tools such as entrustable professional activities and other assessment methods.

The advisory board is composed of representatives from AAIM, ABIM, ACGME, the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians, the Society of General Internal Medicine, and the Society of Hospital Medicine.  Representatives from the American Medical Association (AMA) participated and have been invited to join the advisory board. 

 November 29, 2012 - AAIM to Address NAS Semiannual Milestones Reporting

As the launch of the Next Accreditation System (NAS) nears, AAIM continues to work closely with stakeholders in the academic medicine community to prepare for implementation.  Academic internal medicine must be an exemplar for other specialties and aid programs in implementing NAS.  As part of these efforts, the Internal Medicine Education Redesign Advisory Board, composed of representatives from AAIM, ASP, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the Residency Review Committee for Internal Medicine, the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American College of Physicians, the Society of Hospital Medicine, and the Society of General Internal Medicine, will meet February 13, 2013, in Alexandria, VA, to address the transition to NAS.  Specifically, the advisory board will discuss timing and frequency of milestones reporting with the objective of being able to provide residents robust formative feedback as well as being attentive to program director concerns about biannual reporting as the internal medicine community learns a new system.
