The supervising physician completes monthly evaluations of the resident’s performance. The attending and the resident must review the content of these evaluations at mid and end of month rotation feedback. The resident may, on occasion, need to initiate the review.
Clinical Competency Committee
In consulation with the categorical clinical competency committees, resident performance is evaluated at least two times per year.
Resident Performance is evaluated using the six competencies as defined in the
ACGME Outcome Project
Practice-based Learning and Improvement
Interpersonal and Communication Skills
Tools used to assess competence may include one or more of the following methods:
Mini Clinical Exercises, staff/patient/resident peers Surveys, In-patient/Out-patient case presentations, Quality Improvement exercises, Clinical performance ratings, OSCE, review of procedure logs, unsolicited written or verbal feedback, In-training examination, computer based training, chart reviews, and practice/billing audits.
Program Director’s Evaluation
A formal review of the resident’s performance will be discussed with each resident individually at least two times a year (three times a year for PGY1 residents) by the Med-Peds Program Director. The resident’s file is reviewed with the resident by the Program Director during this scheduled meeting. A narrative assessment will be placed in the resident’s file following each such meeting. Both specialty boards receive a yearly summative evaluation.
A final written evaluation is prepared by the Program Director, which summarizes the resident’s performance, verifying the resident has demonstrated competence as defined by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The final evaluation remains part of the resident’s permanent record that is maintained by the program and used as a reference for information requests by third parties, such as employers, hospitals, and state license boards.
