By definition, any educational process must include assessment. Without evaluation, we can't assure we are providing you skills and knowledge necessary for successful clinical practice.
We regularly assess your progress, advise you in areas of strength and areas for improvement and direct you in ongoing efforts to continuously improve.
A variety of sources evaluate you during residency to form a "360 Degree Assessment." In addition to completing self evaluations, you'll be evaluated by nurses, medical assistants, medical students and peers.
ACGME's Six Competencies
In an ever-growing shift toward training to competency, ACGME has stated the following: "The residency program must require its residents to develop the competencies in the six areas below to the level expected in a new practitioner."
These competencies include:
- Patient Care
- Medical Knowledge
- Practice-Based Knowledge and Improvement
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
- Systems-Based Practice

With these competencies in mind, we have recently embraced the Milestone Evaluation System to further enhance your training.
