An Entrustable Professional Activity-Based Framework to Prepare Fourth-Year Medical Students for Internal Medicine Careers

 Available in the November 2017 issue of Journal of General Internal Medicine, the AAIM Medical Student to Resident Interface Committee developed a curricular framework to prepare students, based on five of AAMC core entrustable professsional activities for entering residency.  The critical areas outlined include entering orders, forming and answering clinical questions, conducting patient care handovers, collaborating interprofessionally, and recognizing patients requiring urgent care and initiating that care. Minimizing the competing demands of the transitional phase of the fourth year and defining these important elements will ensure new residents can function safely and competently in supervised postgraduate settings.
