The cornerstone of our approach lies in feedback and training based on behaviors. By highlighting ACGME behavioral-based competencies, our approach drives the greatest possible performance gap improvement.

The Javelin approach has 3 steps:

1. Interpersonal Skills Simulations

Accelerate GME is a multi year program with a curriculum aligned to the ACGME milestones to develop progressively the interpersonal skills and professionalism of resident physicians. Residents simply log in on any internet connected device at their convenience, 24/7, 365. After watching select videos from our rich array of real-life on-the-job scenarios, the learner is inserted into the situation. Using the video camera capabilities of their smartphone, tablet or computer they respond as the physician in that situation, recording his or her response.

2. Feedback

Residents are provided an opportunity to watch their own responses, self-critique and rerecord. Like biofeedback self reflection on our actions drives positive improvement. Javelin also provides an option to leverage our professional coaches to review the simulation responses and provide rich, detailed, objective feedback.

3. Coaching

Residents are coached through the simulations with model responses and behavioral checklists to further improve their interpersonal skills. Our portal also includes a video scratchpad which is available anytime so residents can practice responding to the simulations, driving further improvement. Javelin's professional coaches are another option providing recommendations and encouragement, on-the-job suggestions and ongoing tracking of the resident's performance over time. It all works together to build a more competent, confident and complete physician.


Javelin builds self-awareness and increases performance by improving the way physicians interact on the job.


Our training strategy is rooted in two revolutionary scientific principles:

Formative simulations

Identifying the problem is half the solution. Catalyst HCP uses formative simulations to help shape physician’s learning during the simulation process itself. We’re all about enabling subjects to see the problem and solution simultaneously and spontaneously.


Teaching physicians to change small behaviors yields big results. Research shows that adults learn best and retain most when information is given in small morsels. Catalyst HCP users are given structured feedback down to each behavior, including what they missed and an example of the most effective response. They are given actionable instructions to improve that behavior. The learning doses are as easy-to-digest as the time commitment.

Taking a test is not just a passive mechanism for assessing how much people know. It actually helps people learn.

In a recent deployment after only 3 weeks of micro-learning with Catalyst HCP, physicians showed a significant improvement in HCACHP and communication skills.
