Targeting Adaptive Expertise: Theory and Strategies to Guide Medical Learners

Bill Cutrer, MD MEd

Associate Dean for Undergraduate Medical Education
Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Critical Care Medicine
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt


Brief Overview:

Clinicians are routinely faced with complex patient care scenarios.  Many of these challenges can be addressed through the application of known solutions. Others however, require the clinician to solve a new or novel challenge.  Adaptive Expertise allows the clinician to effectively learn and innovate when needed to address these novel scenarios. The session will explore concepts surrounding routine and adaptive expertise, including the Master Adaptive Learner Model, as well as implications for both trainee development and practicing clinician lifelong learning.  Attendees will leave with practical strategies for implementation within their clinical contexts.
