How Do We Track Resident Performance?
We have developed an Award-winning process to track performance through the
three years of residency. This process is based on separate grades for the six
competencies of the ACGME which are:
- Medical Knowledge
- Patient Care
- Practice-based Learning
- Systems-based Practice
- Interpersonal and Communication Skills
In addition, we have determined that certain procedures are equally important
and thus are individually graded.
For Osteopathic residents, OMT is considered separately and feedback and performance
goes towards that grade.
Residents meet regularly with an assigned faculty advisor who gives them an
assessment of where they are going with their grade. This feedback allows residents
to correct deficiencies and be aware of what they are doing well.
