Curricular Milestones (CMs)
Level-appropriate expectations that define what it means to be a competent Fellow
To demonstrate a graduating fellow has met the EPAs, criteria have been developed by the ACGME. To help program better access a fellow's competency, The American College of Cardiology for each linked the Core Competencies with the Milestones and put those with expectations for each level of training. Fellows are evaluated and training levels expected to be met at times during your training; these interval-based criteria are termed Curricular Milestones and are Competency-based. Advancement in training requires meeting appropriately-timed milestones; failure to do so will result extension or termination of training.
These can be found in the Cardiology Fellowship curriculum for your review.
