Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs)

« Back to Glossary Index

EPAsare tasks or responsibilities trusted to the trainees to perform on an unsupervised professional practice once they have fulfilled sufficient specific competence. These activities are independently executable, observable and measurable in their process and outcome. EPAs are context-dependent, which means that those should be taught and applied in common medical situations and conditions for patients of any age.
