The transition from undergraduate medical education (UME) to graduate medical education (GME) presents many challenges, including being a discontinuous time of professional development. In 2020, the Coalition for Physician Accountability charged its UME-GME Review Committee (UGRC) with recommending solutions to challenges frequently encountered during the UME-GME transition. The committee published its 34 recommendations in 2021, but since then little progress has been made implementing the proposed solutions.

In July 2023, the American Medical Association convened more than 45 national experts from across the medical education continuum to discuss several UGRC recommendations and consider practical next steps in the context of precision education. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of the UGRC recommendations, with special focus on two of those recommendations, and the practical next steps identified during the AMA’s July stakeholders meeting.

Attend this AMA ChangeMedEd® webinar and be able to:

  1. Review the Coalition for Physician Accountability UME-GME Review Committee recommendations for comprehensive improvement of the UME-GME transition  
  2. Define the objectives and tools needed to support targeted coaching of residents for professional identity formation and growth mindset across the transition 
  3. Identify the steps needed to help learners develop individualized learning plans for the start of residency 
  4. Outline actionable next steps for moving UGRC recommendations forward considering the role of precision education
