Physiatry Specific EPA/OPA

The AAP is excited to announce the availability of the core set of PMR-specific Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) that were developed and validated through a special task force of the AAP's Education Committee. Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) have been adopted by a variety of specialties for the purpose of real-time observational assessment of clinical competency in a manner that makes intuitive sense and is feasible within the workplace environment.
