  • 9. EPORTOFLIOS IN MEDICAL EDUCATION Are starting off as repositories  Test scores and evaluations, procedure logs Increasingly more interactivity (Bennett, McWhorter, & Sankey, 2012)  Mentoring  Identifying learning gaps  Reflection May be tied to other data sources  HCAHPS (patient satisfaction and pay for performance)  Quality and patient safety New: evaluate graduate (GME) candidates on soft skills and reflective practice (Bennett, McWhorter, & Sankey, 2012)
