Entrustable Professional Assessments

Aim of EPA Workplace-Based Assessment

  • Foster growth through feedback from direct observation
  • Determine whether learner can be entrusted with PGY1 practice through observations in authentic work environments
  • NOT fine-grained differentiation of excellent vs even more excellent: Too many confounders, fosters performance mindset rather than growth mindset
  • NOT failure by one observation: holistic review of longitudinal data points and trajectory
