Core Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency (UPDATED)


The Core Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for entering residency initiative was undertaken to improve public health by addressing the gap between program directors' expectations and new residents' performance on day one of residency. This resource contains a presentation about, and guides to the entering residency initiative. The guide is provided in two versions: one for developers and the other for faculty/learners.
