Competency-Based Veterinary Education Working Group Meeting

In November, Professor Stephen May attended a meeting of the Competency-Based Veterinary Education Working Group (a subgroup of AAVMC) in Denver.  The AAVMC CBVE Working Group was created and charged with developing a modern competency framework for veterinary education and clinical assessment in July 2015. The group began by systematically analysing the most contemporary work in competency-based education undertaken in health professions like human medicine. The result represents one of the most substantial pedagogical projects ever undertaken by the AAVMC. The group are currently working on assessment of professional skills in context, through identification of Entrustable Professional Activities and “milestones” in their development.
