Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) define observable key tasks that a doctor should be able to do independently after having completed a certain level of education. Progression is facilitated by frequent assessments of the defined activities, with increased degree of independence. The observations should be supported by constructive feed-forward. EPA is currently used in several countries both in undergraduate and post graduate education.
