Background: The Consortium of American College of Surgeons-Accredited Education Institutes was created to promote patient safety through the use of simulation, develop new education and technologies, identify best practices, and encourage research and collaboration. Methods: During the 7th Annual Meeting of the Consortium, leaders from a variety of specialties discussed how simulation is playing a role in the assessment of resident performance within the context of the Milestones of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education as part of the Next Accreditation System. Conclusion: This report presents experiences from several viewpoints and supports the utility of simulation for this purpose.
