Competency-Based Medical Education Model
The Rocky Vista University (RVU) Physician Assistant (PA) Program designed its curriculum in the competency-based medical education (CBME) model. CBME is defined as an outcome-based approach to the design, implementation, assessment, and evaluation of a medical education program and its learners using an organizing framework of competencies.
The PA Program is a 27-month curriculum developed and implemented under the authority of the Provost following approval by the PA Program Curriculum Committee and the RVU Institutional Curriculum Committee. The PA Program website contains details of the curriculum.
