The Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Statewide Campus System  has been named one of five regional assessment training centers by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME.

Other sites recognized are Vanderbilt University, UCLA, the Cleveland Clinic and the ACGME’s Chicago headquarters. Each regional site features local instructors partnering with ACGME faculty to teach critical methods for assessment in a practical application including significant time devoted to medical simulation. The regional centers will also share resources and training tips.

The college is the only osteopathic school and the only center that is sponsored by a community-based training consortium.  

The training, although focused on ACGME milestones, will prepare clinical faculty to evaluate residents and students. The ACGME milestones provide structure for competency-based assessments to monitor resident growth in competence through residency. The college’s first intensive assessment training will be held in fall 2018.

Training sessions for the Statewide Campus System’s core faculty members who will teach the course takes place this fall and next spring. Assessment courses will be offered in East Lansing, Detroit or Clinton Township.

Faculty members from anywhere in the U.S.  are welcome to attend the assessment course offered by MSU. The course will be free for those who are SCS members.
