Milestone Data NOT to Be Used for High Stakes Decisions

| April 25, 2018 | Print Article

The ACGME has recently published a summary of the intention and purpose of the use of Milestone data.  Use of Milestones Data by External Entities for High Stakes Decisions – A Function for Which they Are not Designed or Intended reiterates that Milestone data is NOT to be used for high stakes decisions by any program, certifying board or licensing board. As we begin to work on Milestones 2.0 we must remember that Milestones are a framework and tool for programs to use in improving the quality of their graduate medical education training programs.   Share the publication with your GMEC and program directors for discussion on the use of Milestone data.
