Delphi study Vasiliki published in BMC Medical Education

Vasiliki conducted a Delphi study to validate the CanMEDS core competencies within general medical education based on the criteria of assessment feasibility and assessment consistency.

The results showed the discrepancies between these two criteria. A CanMEDS competence that is considered 'feasible' does not automatically mean that it can be assessed in a consistent way. Although the CanMEDS competences offer a comprehensive framework, they remain vague and too generic to support evaluations in the workplace. Therefore, there is a need for additional specific competences and/or partial competences that more clearly identify and define the competences to be achieved by students.
