AAMC Curricular Resources & MedBiquitous Standardized Vocabulary Survey

The AAMC Curriculum Resources and MedBiquitous are collecting feedback from the health professions community regarding the standardized vocabulary for instructional methods, assessment methods, and resources. 

Standardized vocabulary must be flexible enough for school-specific terminology, yet broad enough to glean insight into the tracking of delivery and assessment of learning activities across schools and organizations.

As the landscape of health professions education evolves, so does standardized vocabulary. The current list requires refreshing to accurately reflect current trends and new methodologies, as well as remain relevant and applicable for the future and across the health professions.

This survey is voluntary and should take around 10 minutes to complete. Your responses are classified as restricted, may not be published with any identification without your permission, and will be stored securely and electronically by the AAMC.

The survey is live now. Click here to begin.

IPEC Institutional Assessment Instrument

In partnership with the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, IPEC developed an institutional assessment tool to identify institutional characteristics associated with successful implementation of high-quality programmatic interprofessional education (IPE).

Leaders of academic institutions are encouraged to utilize the 20-item IPEC Institutional Assessment Instrument alongside the 105 expert-generated consensus statements it is based upon to assess their institutional capacity for high-quality programmatic IPE and to plan for quality improvement.
