Core Curriculum

The ROECSG Core Curriculum Expert Delphi Consensus project aims to develop a United States radiation oncology curricular framework by defining Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) and content domains. The goal is to develop a mutually-defined radiation oncology curricular framework via a formalized Delphi process. The ultimate goal is to produce a list of EPAs and content domains with suggested curriculum weightings.

EPAs are a commonly utilized approach in the Competence by Design learning model. EPAs focus on a practical approach to assessing competence in learners. The Delphi technique is an established method to achieve consensus of opinion from stakeholders and experts on a certain topic area. Developing a consensus list of radiation oncology clinical EPAs and content domains through multiple Delphi rounds helps to define the national radiation oncology curriculum and guide assessment of trainees within the field.

The results from the Delphi process ROECSG Core Curriculum are now published in the Red Journal: Development of a United States Radiation Oncology Curricular Framework: A Stakeholder Delphi Consensus
