The ACGME subcompetencies for PCCM fellowship require training in communication, professionalism and ethics. However, the best methods for developing these competencies in fellowship learners are unknown. To address the knowledge gap we designed, implemented, and evaluated a comprehensive longitudinal curriculum for communication, professionalism and ethics in PCCM fellowship, including didactics, simulation training, medical humanities experiences and workplace assessment and observation.
1. Highlight the elements of the longitudinal curriculum for communication, professionalism and ethics.
2. Review the curricular evaluation data.
3. Consider next steps and mechanisms for transport of the curriculum to other fellowship programs.
