For first-time users, please follow the instructions in the GCEP Learner Guide

The American Medical Association has created a series of GME competency modules for residents and fellows to complete. These modules are an integral part of the educational component of your residency/fellowship with LSU School of Medicine and are to be completed during your first, second, and third year of training. Completion of these modules is MANDATORY for promotion to the next house officer level and graduation.  For more information, visit the American Medical Association's GME Competency Education Program website.



The GME Competency Education Platform gives residents tools to develop and measure their knowledge and skills to help meet ACGME competency education requirements. The short courses reduce the time needed for education, thus reducing the stress on residents. Residents can keep track of completed courses and obtain their own printable certificates verifying they passed the post-assessments. Each course contains interactive elements so residents can apply their learning to real-time situations, and automated email due-date reminders keep residents on track. With 24-hour access and content optimized for mobile, residents can complete courses and assessments at their convenience.  Residents can review their current testing status or see detailed reports on completed assignments in their progress file.
