Abstract: This chapter familiarizes readers with the concept of an outcome or competency-based curriculum by presenting multidimensional tools available for measuring competence through the lens of postgraduate medical education competencies as proposed by two major medical professional organizations: the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. This chapter presents an existing collaboration between the ACGME and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) as to measuring medical competency; moreover, the chapter presents the CanMEDS 2005 Project by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. This chapter emphasizes a role adult education in medical education by drawing a specific attention to principles of andragogy, as aiming to suggest an andragogy-oriented direction toward planning medical curriculum, making policy, and assessing and evaluating postgraduate medical training programs
