The Medical School Objectives Project is an initiative of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) that is designed to reach a general consensus within the American medical education community on the "skills, attitudes, and knowledge" that students graduating from accredited American medical schools should possess before beginning postgraduate training. Since its inception in 1997, the Medical School Objectives Project has published special reports addressing specific topics in medical education. The goal of these reports is to outline these learning objectives and the educational and assessment strategies that might be put to use in their implementation. Titles of previous reports issued by the Medical School Objectives Project include "Medical Informatics and Population Health," "Communication in Medicine," "Basic Science and Clinical Research," "Quality of Care," and "Genetics Education." These reports are available online at www.aamc.org/meded/msop/start.htm.
