Dr. Michael Bond, Residency Program Director, along with emergency medicine program directors from Staten Island University Hospital, Hofstra North Shore-LU School of Medicine, the University of Kentucky, and Michigan State University, is a co-author of “Have First-Year Emergency Medicine Residents Achieved Level 1 on Care-Based Milestones?,” published in the December issue of the Journal of Graduate Medical Education. The investigators surveyed 41 interns from 4 programs and their supervising attendings regarding the residents’ fulfillment of clinical expectations that constitute Level 1 ability (at the level of a medical school graduate). One-fourth of the study group fell short of meeting all nine care-based milestones. The findings of this study have implications for training programs in all medical specialties.
