———————————————————————————————————–

You are cordially invited to follow the blog of the International Collaboration of Competency-Based Medical Educators (ICBME). We are a group international experts who examine conceptual issues and current debates in competency-based medical education (CBME). The aim of this blog is to reflect our enthusiastic ongoing discussions and ardent debates of CBME issues.

There are many members in our network, and only handful of them will be able to share their views during the monthly meetings. However, there is so much going on, our members are working with their innovations and reflecting their experiences. This blog will give you impressions of our work and a glimpse of the future of medical education.

Most blog texts will broaden the perspectives presented in the scientific articles written by the members of the network. The articles are always written according to a format, which does not leave much room for personal views and perceptions. We are expected to write what we know and no more, and with this blog the authors will be able to further elaborate their thoughts.
