    Title:

    Determining a Quality CME/CPD Program: Insights from the Asch study

    Presenter: Robert Englander, MD, Senior Director for Competency-based Learning and Assessment, Association of American Medical Colleges

    Facilitator: Curt Olson, PhD

    Background: A fundamental assumption of continuing education of health professionals is that clinical performance is educationally sensitive. That is, it can be improved through activities aimed at changing practice. However, studies by David Asch, MD, MBA and colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania suggest that a powerful predictor of how a physician practices is where he or she received residency training.

    Questions to be addressed in the discussion include:
    1. How can we make sense out of the findings of the Asch study? What hypotheses might account for them?
    2. What questions does this study raise regarding physician performance?
    3. What other factors are thought/known to influence how physicians practice?
    4. What is the evidence that these other factors are influential?

    Dr. Englander has selected the following recent articles to stimulate discussion on this topic.
