Viewing Uncertainty as Opportunity: Creating an Effective Mindset for Peak Performance
In 2013, ACGME began a scenario-based strategic planning process to reimagine how we will educate today's residents to practice internal medicine in 2035. The work has provided a new paradigm for “anticipatory education.” Graduates will need to maintain a patient-centered focus while juggling economic pressures, algorithms, and protocols. The principles of “peak performance” can help program directors prepare residents—and ourselves—to manage the uncertainty, risk, and opportunity of Medicine 2035.
