Education?

Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) provide a framework of expectations to bridge the gap between medical students and residency training. EPAs are assessed while students are in real-world clinical settings and used by students and administration alike to determine areas of focus.

Meet Technology.

The best way to get accurate and frequent EPA data tied back to students is to make the process easy. With eMedley’s EPAs, the student just hands the phone or tablet to their preceptor. In a few quick taps and a verification signature the EPA is submitted. Administrators then have the data available at a student, EPA, or cohort level.

Step 2: Create a New EPA

When learners complete an activity, they will create a new EPA in the eMedley mobile app and enter information such as the date an activity was completed and the name of their preceptor. 

Step 3: Preceptors Evaluate Learners

Preceptors are asked to rate the learner’s ability to perform the activity and their trustworthiness using a variety of competency scales.
