A fundamental mission of any medical residency, PA training institution, or any other clinical training program is to produce knowledgeable and capable clinical care professionals. Technologies now exist that allow these institutions to apply adjunct electronic training and knowledge testing to their traditional rotation-based training. Challenger is the pioneering leader in integrating the two.
Our academic e-learning system provides both comprehensive and didactic training and testing curricula with performance tracking and knowledge quality assessment reporting in an easy-to-implement solution. Our programs provide clinical educators rigorous adjunct online training content, flexible and powerful testing features, and keen oversight of their clinician learners, individually, by training year, and their program as a whole. It's no wonder why Challenger's program is fast becoming the new "must have" in the clinical education arena.
Our programs are installed at over 250 clinical institutions today and that number is growing rapidly. Select the program type that suits your training environment or call us at 1-877-338-4637.About the Challenger Program for Residencies (CPR)
Over 250 institutions are using Challenger systems to ensure quality physician cognitive knowledge and professional compliance standards. We've recently completed a second study into the effectiveness of our program at institutions that use Challenger report statistically valid results of a 10% or more (as much as 30%) improvement in in-training exam scores. Other reported positives include improved professionalism and patient satisfaction, increased learner participation, and net time and labor efficiency for faculty, administrators, and learners.
Quality education needs quality materials and ongoing upkeep. Challenger maintains one of the largest continually-updating, peer-reviewed, and fully-accredited electronic medical education libraries in the world. Our content library not only spans all the major medical specialty. The didactic information and Q&A testing materials are actively reviewed and improved on an ongoing basis, many times faster than traditional texts or other online publications.
Challenger's clinical Q&A collection contains over 25,000 individual case-based board-style questions with rich remediation and references. The materials are also modular and tailored in manageable groups for multiple applications.
We have ready-to-go comprehensive curricula based on current certification exam standard and the ACGME core competencies. Challenger can even customize curricula content and testing to fit your specific training objectives or rotation schedule so applying our system is quick and painless. We simply ask our customers to enforce its use. If that occurs, improvement is typically recognized soon after.
Training, as with medicine, is both an art and a science. We even have a blog dedicated to Evidence-Based Topics. Just as academics clinicians investigate treatment effects, education experts ask: "What is the effect of this or that training activity?" The education training management and design team at Challenger brings decades of professional and academic experience in this regard to the creation and maintenance of any training and assessment platforms. We study such topics as:
These are useful questions to ask of any educational organization. Challenger believes that if you can't answer these questions, you can't prove your training is effective.
Continuing Quality Improvement (CQI) is both objective and subjective. Yes, with a Challenger program in place at your institution, you are being proactive in improving your training outcomes, but what's more, as these measures are becoming more and more transparent to the public, your institution is seen as having an edge on the competition. Having the proof of your program's proactive CQI initiatives and the statistical data to back up its success only enhances your reputation as a modern, vibrant institution.
Plus, clinicians that graduate from institutions using Challenger typically stay more active in their daily self-assessment and therefore tend to be more proficient and regarded. Their performance after they leave your tutelage reflects upon you and positively impacts your brand, your incoming admissions, and industry status. In fact, the absence of an adjunct online training system like Challenger's is fast becoming a quality "red flag."
