Educational Program Objectives

As approved by the General Faculty, the Tucson Educational Policy Committee (TEPC) has established the educational program objectives for the program leading to the MD degree.

The Educational Program Objectives (EPOs) consist of measuable objectives for student peformance, and aligned with the six competencies generated by the ACGME (Accrediting Council on Graduate Medical Eduation).

The College of Medicine – Tucson's EPOs may align as well with the AAMC Core EPAs (Entrustable Professional Activities) for Entering Residency. The Core EPAs indiate what students should be able to know or do upon entering residency, and, therefore, upon graduation from medical school. You can find the Core EPAs online and a guide to how these might be aligned with EPOs mentioned above.
