In 1999, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) introduced the Outcome Project, which was designed to improve and ensure the quality of graduate medical education. The Outcome Project introduced 6 core competencies that would allow the ACGME to evaluate Internal Medicine training programs by measuring outcomes. The 6 core competencies put forward by the ACGME were patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice (www.acgme.org/Outcome/).
