The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has challenged all residencies with a new paradigm - to teach and evaluate residents based on six core competencies. One of these core competencies is clinical assessment. Standardized patients and direct observation are the most promising for emergency medicine educators to use to assess this competency. There is much room for research and national standardization of methods.
