Simposio Internacional de Educación Médica

La Educacion Médica en posgrado ha introducido las Actividades Profesionales Confiables (Entrustable Professional Activities EPA) como uno de los desarrollos más importantes en la Educación Médica Basada en Competencia, que han permitido unir las Competencias y la Práctica Clínica en el Sitio de Trabajo de los residentes.

En los últimos años las Actividades Profesionales Confiables (EPA) se han trasladado al Pregrado creando grandes expectativas y retos para su implementación: uno de ellos es lograr la integración con el modelo de diseño instruccional de tareas complejas, aplicado muy bien en los programas de pregrado, pero que implica la adaptación de la dinámica de las Facultades de Medicina al aprendizaje basado en el sitio de trabajo, por medio de tareas de la vida real, con disminución progresiva de la supervisión y mayor autonomía de los estudiantes.

Muchos de los sistemas de salud en el mundo requieren médicos generales formados para tomar decisiones, según la carga de enfermedad de su práctica clínica e implica una formación en la escuela de medicina acorde con las exigencias de su entorno. De esta manera, La Facultad de Medicina de la Universidad de La Sabana, consciente de los nuevos desafíos de la Educación Médica, desarrolló el primer Simposio Internacional de Educación Médica, con la participación de los Investigadores más influyentes en Educacion Médica del mundo.
