Position Statement

Competency-based training in medical education - 2022

Competency Based Medical Education (CBME) is an internationally recognised and endorsed framework that is utilised throughout Australia and comparable international jurisdictions.

Competency Based Medical Education is an educational model and framework fit for the needs and complexities of the 21st century. The AMA supports the usage of CBME within Australian medical curricula when blended with traditional medical education approaches and delivered with appropriately qualified trainee supervisors. The AMA recognises that competency based medical education needs to be more than a ‘tick and flick’ exercise. Both trainees and trainee supervisors must be supported to deliver effective educational outcomes and ensure patient safety.
