I-18 - Older and wiser: Assessing competency of elder physicians
Current research suggests that physician competency and practice performance decline with increased years in practice (Hawkins, 2016). Knowing when to give up practice is an important decision for most physicians, but many physicians lack information and education regarding the effects of aging on practice. This program will review current evidence and research regarding the assessment of senior/late career physicians to help attendees understand the uncertain and variable influences of aging on clinical and cognitive competency. The AMA’s Council on Medical Education worked in collaboration with the Senior Physicians Section to identify organizations to work together on the AMA Work Group on Assessment of Senior/Late Career Physicians over the last three years. Council on Medical Education Report 1-I-18 will be the product, in part, of these discussions. If you have any questions, please contact us at 800-621-8335.
