Development of core entrustable professional activities linked to a competency-based veterinary education framework. Academic Article uri icon


  • Purpose: Despite the adoption of competency-based education in some veterinary schools over the past 15years, only recently has a concerted effort been directed toward this in veterinary education internationally.Methods: In 2015, educational leaders from the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) member schools came together with a strong call to action to create shared tools for clinical competency assessment.Results: This resulted in the formation of the AAVMC Competency-Based Veterinary Education (CBVE) Working Group, which then embarked on the creation of a shared competency framework and the development of eight core entrustable professional activities (EPAs) linked to this framework.Conclusions: This paper will report on the development of these EPAs and their integration with the concurrently-developed CBVE Framework.
