Milestones Assessment Video
The Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has mandated that every specialty create milestones that are performance activities for that specialty.  Every resident must be periodically assessed in the ability to correctly perform these activities, and competence in performance is required for successful completion of training. Our specialty has created and made available checklists and other documents to assist attending physicians in their assessment of successful performance of the milestones. What has not been emphasized or widely discussed is the need to not only observe performance but question the reasoning behind that performance.

This video uses two cases to illustrate that what appears to be correct actions and decisions may be performed for incorrect reasons and provides a natural introduction for feedback and teaching.
It is vital that supervising physicians question and discuss residents’ reasoning before accepting actions as proof of competency in performing the milestones.
