Medical schools focus on knowledge transfer, professional attitudes, and clinical skills.  Since the era of "Problem-based Learning," educators have also focused on the goal of "self-directed learning."  However, the debate continues about how to create the best assessment to drive learning.  As educators turn to "portfolios" and the concept of the "educational alliance," we have the tools to drive a shift from self-directed to "self-regulated" learning. Self-regulated learning appears critical to a future in which we must switch from a knowledge-based "competent" physician, to a self-regulated flexible, adaptable and "capable" physician.  This change is not merely rhetorical; it changes our, and our learners, educational stance and drives new educational processes. This hour will take participants on a journey from theory to practice through the example of a new medical school.
