Abstract

The Korean Association of Medical Colleges (KAMC) developed graduate outcomes based on "The role of Korean doctor, 2014" to serve as guidelines regarding outcome-based education in Korea. The working group in this study analyzed 65 competencies proposed in "The role of Korean doctor, 2014" according to the developmental principle that certain outcomes should be demonstrated at the point of entry into the graduate medical education. We established 34 competencies as "preliminary graduate outcomes" (PGOs). The advisory committee consisted of 11 professors, who reviewed the validity of PGOs. Ultimately, a total of 19 "revised graduate outcomes" (RGOs) were selected. We modified the RGOs based on opinions from medical schools and a public hearing. In November 2017, the KAMC announced the "graduate outcomes for basic medical education," which serves as a guide for basic medical education for the 40 medical schools throughout Korea. Medical schools can expand the graduate outcomes according to their educational goals and modify them according to their own context. We believe that graduate outcomes can be a starting point for connecting basic medical education to graduate medical education.
