Residents are evaluated by peers, faculty, and fellows during their rotations. Evaluations are compiled, along with other performance data, in a collective New Innovations portfolio and reviewed on a quarterly basis with the resident's core advisor.
Likewise, residents also have the opportunity to evaluate their rotations, faculty, fellows, and peers at the conclusion of each two-week block. Program Leadership is dedicated to continually enhancing the Program, so annual feedback about the residency program is also required.
Residents are evaluated annually in 21 internal medicine and 22 pediatric milestones based on the six ACGME Core Competencies: 1) Patient Care; 2) Medical Knowledge; 3) Practice Based Learning and Improvement; 4) Systems Based Practice; 5) Professionalism; and, 6) Interpersonal Skills and Communication.
The Program-appointed Clinical Competency Committee meets on a quarterly basis to review the progress of each resident. They make recommendations regarding promotion, counseling, remediation, probation or dismissal from the program.
