    Clinical Assistant Professor, Emergency Medicine

    Bio Holly Caretta-Weyer is currently Assistant Residency Program Director for the Stanford University Emergency Medicine Residency Program and Director of Evaluation and Assessment for the Emergency Medicine Clerkships at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Caretta-Weyer attended medical school at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health where she graduated Alpha Omega Alpha with Honors in Research. She loved being a Badger so much that she stayed for her Emergency Medicine Residency at the University of Wisconsin where she was also Chief Resident. Dr. Caretta-Weyer then moved to the West Coast where she recently completed her Medical Education Scholarship Fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and is also finishing her thesis work for her Masters in Health Professions Education (MHPE) at the University of Illinois-Chicago.

    While at OHSU, Dr. Caretta-Weyer worked as a member of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Core Entrustable Professional Activities for Entering Residency pilot team and was a founding member of the OHSU undergraduate medical education entrustment committee. She continues to be involved with the national AAMC Core EPA Pilot through her continued collaboration with the OHSU team. Through this process she has gained valuable experience in working to define programmatic assessment, formulate summative entrustment decisions, and more seamlessly bridge the transition from undergraduate to graduate medical education, all of which are key initiatives within medical education.

    Dr. Caretta-Weyer is also the PI on an AMA Reimagining Residency Grant focused on redesigning assessment across the continuum of emergency medicine training and introducing predictive learning analytics to the process. She is additionally a member of the International Competency-Based Medical Education (ICBME) Collaborators, a group that seeks to further research on CBME around the world.

    Dr. Caretta-Weyer's education research interests focus on the implementation of competency-based education and assessment across the continuum of medical education, summative entrustment and promotion decision-making processes, coaching within medical education, residency selection in a competency-based system, and the development of learner handovers to span key transitions in the educational continuum. When not focusing on her administrative and education research interests, Dr. Caretta-Weyer can be found kayaking, hiking, cycling, playing volleyball, or cheering on her favorite sports teams including the Wisconsin Badgers and Milwaukee Brewers.
