Abstract

Entrustable Professional Activities are a holistic assessment framework developed in the Netherlands in 2005, which have recently been adopted in undergraduate medical education in the United States. As part of an increased focus on competency-based assessment, the specialty of pediatrics has led the way in incorporating them into graduate medical education. We describe the development and initial pilot process of implementation of EPAs into the assessment of General Surgery trainees.
