MORAN-BARRIOS, Jesús. New professionals for a new society. Responses from a medical education perspective: competency-based medical education. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2013, vol.33, n.118, pp.385-405. ISSN 2340-2733.

Ongoing reflection on the training of Health Sciences professionals is essential to respond to changes in society. This is particularly important in testing times, such as those of the current economic and social conditions, which have a direct impact on health systems. In the era of globalisation, with the world in constant change, full of uncertainties, and increasing movement of professionals between countries, we need: professionals with new competencies, flexible in adapting to the new times; and new teaching and learning roles, as well as new educational and assessment methods. Competency-based medical education (CBME) is the best approach to respond to the current social and healthcare challenges. In this paper, we outline the principles of CBME, present some of the models most widely adopted internationally, describe the framework of basic competencies that Health Science professionals need today to meet the challenges of tomorrow, and report our experience of the introduction of CBME in specialty training programmes at the Medical Education Unit of Cruces University Hospital.
