Check out the three pilot projects the American Medical Association has approved to see if there are ways to make the PRA credit system more relevant to today's clinicians. According to the AMA MedEd Update, these include:
The Task Force on Sources of Evidence Pilot Project, which will ask faculty to disclose the source(s) of each of their clinical recommendations so participants can later look up the references for themselves.
The Association of American Medical Colleges' Learning from Teaching Pilot Program, which will document the work that goes into teaching residents and medical students in a clinical setting to help determine how best to award AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to physician faculty members who do this sort of teaching.
- The third, proposed by The Mayo Clinic, will look at if, when, and how AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ should be awarded for physicians who create new clinical guidelines or adapt existing guidelnes.
