Objectives The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program is a four-step process that includes the Continuous Certification (ConCert) examination. The ConCert examination is a validated, summative examination that assesses medical knowledge and clinical reasoning. ABEM began administering the ConCert examination in 1989. The ConCert examination must be passed at least every 10 years to maintain certification. This study was undertaken to determine longitudinal physician performance on the ConCert examination. Methods In this longitudinal review, ConCert examination performance was compared among residency-trained emergency physicians (EPs) over multiple examination cycles. Longitudinal analysis was performed using a growth curve model for unbalanced data to determine the growth trajectories of EP performance over time to see if medical knowledge changed. Using initial certification qualifying examination scores, the longitudinal analysis corrected for intrinsic variances in physician ability. Results There were 15,085 first-time testing episodes from 1989 to 2012 involving three examination cycles. The mean adjusted examination scores for all physicians taking the ConCert examination for a first cycle was 85.9 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 85.8 to 85.9), the second cycle mean score was 86.2 (95% CI = 86.0 to 86.3), and the third cycle was 85.4 (95% CI = 85.0 to 85.8). Using the first examination cycle as a reference score, the growth curve model analysis resulted in a coefficient of +0.3 for the second cycle (p < 0.001) and -0.5 for the third cycle (p = 0.02). Initial qualifying (written) examination scores were significant predictors for ConCert examination scores. Conclusions Over time, EP performance on the ConCert examination was maintained. These results suggest that EPs maintain medical knowledge over the course of their careers as measured by a validated, summative medical knowledge assessment. © 2014 by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine.

In 2001, "The Model of the Clinical Practice of Emergency Medicine" was first published. This document, the first of its kind, was the result of an extensive practice analysis of emergency department (ED) visits and several expert panels, overseen by representatives from six collaborating professional organizations (the American Board of Emergency Medicine, the American College of Emergency Physicians, the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, the Residency Review Committee for Emergency Medicine, the Council of Emergency Medicine Residency Directors, and the Emergency Medicine Residents' Association). Every 2 years, the document is reviewed by these organizations to identify practice changes, incorporate new evidence, and identify perceived deficiencies. For this revision, a seventh organization was included, the American Academy of Emergency Medicine. © 2014 by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine.


EMS Examination Task Force,American Board of Emergency Medicine
Prehospital emergency care : official journal of the National Association of EMS Physicians and the National Association of State EMS Directors | Year: 2012

On September 23, 2010, the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved emergency medical services (EMS) as a subspecialty of emergency medicine. As a result, the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) is planning to award the first certificates in EMS medicine in the fall of 2013. The purpose of subspecialty certification in EMS, as defined by ABEM, is to standardize physician training and qualifications for EMS practice, to improve patient safety and enhance the quality of emergency medical care provided to patients in the prehospital environment, and to facilitate integration of prehospital patient treatment into the continuum of patient care. In February 2011, ABEM established the EMS Examination Task Force to develop the Core Content of EMS Medicine (Core Content) that would be used to define the subspecialty and from which questions would be written for the examinations, to develop a blueprint for the examinations, and to develop a bank of test questions for use on the examinations. The Core Content defines the training parameters, resources, and knowledge of the treatment of prehospital patients necessary to practice EMS medicine. Additionally, it is intended to inform fellowship directors and candidates for certification of the full range of content that might appear on the examinations. This article describes the development of the Core Content and presents the Core Content in its entirety.

Objectives The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Medical Specialties sought to define milestones for skill and knowledge acquisition during residency training. Milestones are significant objective observable events. The milestones are listed within a structure that is derived from the ACGME general competencies. Major groups of milestones are called "subcompetencies". The original 24 subcompetencies containing 255 milestones for emergency medicine (EM) were developed through a multiorganizational group representing most EM stakeholder groups. To assure that the milestones reflected EM resident progress throughout training, the EM Milestones Working Group (EM MWG) sought to validate the individual milestones. Methods A computer-based survey was sent to all EM residency programs. The survey period began on April 30, 2012, and concluded on May 15, 2012. Respondents were asked to assign each milestone to a specific level of skill or knowledge acquisition. These levels ranged from a beginning resident to an accomplished clinician. There were two different forms that divided the milestones into two groups of 12 subcompetencies each. Surveys were randomly assigned to programs. Results There were five respondents (the program director and four key faculty) requested from each of the 159 residences. There were responses from 96 programs (60.4%). Of the 795 survey recipients, 28 were excluded due to prior exposure to the EM milestones. Of the remaining 767 potential respondents, 281 completed the survey (36.6%) within a 16-day period. Based on the survey results, the working group adjusted the milestones in the following ways: one entire subcompetency (teaching) was eliminated, six new milestones were created, 34 milestones were eliminated, 26 milestones were reassigned to a lower level score, and 20 were reassigned to a higher level. Nineteen milestones were edited to provide greater clarity. The final result was 227 discrete milestones among 23 subcompetencies. Conclusions The EM milestones were validated through a milestone assignment process using a computer-based survey completed by program directors and key faculty. Milestones were revised in accordance with the results to better align assignment within each performance level. © 2013 by the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine.
