ACEM has just posted a video which discusses the Curriculum Revision Project. With commentary from College heavyweights Sally McCarthy and Andrew Singer, as well as CRP project leads and some registrars, it is a brief over view of the CRP covering aspects including:
- Learning objectives
- Workplace based assessments
- Overall goals
The goal of the CRP is to produce “better rounded Emergency Physicians” with a broader range of skills and training. No doubt there will some debate about the WBA’s vs traditional exams, as clearly neither are perfect, however there is an enormous amount of behind the scenes work going into the CRP aimed at making the new assessments as fair, practical and relevant as possible. If you’re a current ACEM trainee you need to be paying close attention throughout the CRP transition process, so check out the video here.
