Institutional Curriculum

The AMA’s GME Competency Education Program (GCEP) is a series of online educational modules designed to complement teachings in patient settings and didactic curriculum in residency and fellowship programs. It helps residents and their institutions develop Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) milestones to meet core competency requirements. GCEP offers a robust library of coursework and addresses the ACGME  competency requirements, which call for programs to integrate the following competencies into their curriculum:

  • Patient Care
  • Medical Knowledge
  • Practice-based Learning and Improvement
  • Interpersonal and Communication Skills
  • Professionalism
  • Systems-based Practice

The GME Competency Education Platform gives residents tools to develop and measure their knowledge and skills to help meet ACGME competency education requirements. The short courses reduce the time needed for education, thus reducing the stress on residents. Residents can keep track of completed courses and obtain their own printable certificates verifying they passed the post-assessments. Harbor-UCLA Medical Center has classified the GCEP courses in the following three modules:

Grade A online courses are required by the institution to be complete by all house staff prior to starting training at Harbor-UCLA.
