There is increasing recognition that medical education should be adapted to address the integration of the electronic medical record (EMR) into medical practice, but how this should occur and the specific educational goals have not been well defined. In this Viewpoint, we offer suggestions for updating the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies to promote optimal integration of the EMR into clinical practice, guidance for using data available within the EMR to support and evaluate the achievement of ACGME milestones, and specific steps that individual institutions can take to support this evolution in medical education.
