Session Overview:
One of the goals of rheumatology training programs is to prepare skilled rheumatology practitioners. The statement of the goal alone does not provide a structured and organized approach to developing a successful curriculum. The Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine has convened a task force on education redesign to provide a realistic idea of what it means to be a physician practicing internal medicine. The initiative calls for the development of several competency-based initiatives and conduct multi-institutional pilot projects, based on the American Board of Internal Medicine Milestones Project, to validate competency-based evaluation tools and methods.

Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • develop milestones for rheumatology training, from medical school through fellowship
  • discuss how to increase training efficiency
  • innovate processes to help guarantee the preparation of appropriately trained rheumatologists
