Welcome to the ACMD 512 WIKI.


The focus of this course is on the clinical competencies, their teaching, outcomes, and relation to milestones (and EPAs),  related to interpersonal and communication skills, practice-based learning and improvement, systems based practice, medical knowledge and patient care. In relation to these competencies, the course will address the conceptual framework and teaching and assessment techniques that can be used. Development and use of learner portfolios to reflect skill levels and skill development is an important adjunct to training in the competencies. Onsite skills development sessions will address teaching skills,  feedback, microskills of teaching, quality improvement,  teaching and learning portfolios, learners in difficulty, and outcomes .


For our first session on Jan 14 


 Text for the course: Practical Guide to the Evaluation of Clinical Competence  by Eric S. Holmboe and Richard E. Hawkins.

How to proceed with using the wiki.

There is a Sidebar box and a Folders box  to the right on the front page (and on all other pages, also).  You will find it under the label: Navigator.

Each folder in the Navigator box corresponds to a class, they are numbered 1-7 and 9 Final project. Inside the folder are links to the readings, usually, and also the assignment as well as additional material. Most folders contain a blank page on which you can paste your discussion. Be sure to login and click on the EDIT tab at the upper left to write or post on the page. Also, be sure to Save, using the button at the bottom left.

The folders are coordinated to the syllabus (which is above).


Click on Session 1- Assessing Competence


This page will explain what will happen in our first discussion session.


Note: Each class module is in a folder (see Navigator to the right) labelled Class1 with the date, etc.
Our current class folders all start with the number 1, so that they will be in order and at the top. Throughout the course, we would like you to pay particular attention to the pages in the numbered folders. They correspond with each session and contain information, readings, etc.

Unfortunately, we could not change the numbers of some of the pages without altering the links, thus, the  session numbers are not always correct; however, the folders' class numbers, dates and titles should always be correct.

Most of our work will be in teams (see above for your team assignment). You are to meet and communicate in order to submit a collaborative (and hopefully a communal) response.
