Abstract

Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) have emerged as a useful and feasible way to put outcome-based competency frameworks into practice. It has given curriculum planners a tool to signpost the expected outcomes of a trainee as well as for the trainers to effectively evaluate if the student/resident is attaining the relevant competencies at the right time. Work on EPAs is well underway in graduate medical education and some allied health professions. However, currently, there is a paucity of published work in this area in undergraduate medical education. We describe a transferrable approach to feasibly document EPAs in an undergraduate medical education curriculum in Singapore and discuss limitations and challenges faced when developing EPAs in this setting.
