Evaluation

Resident evaluation is a continuous process that begins with daily feedback by faculty on each shift. For the Emergency Medicine blocks, assessments are recorded on daily feedback forms.  As per PGME policy, final ITERs are completed by the Promotion and Evaluation Subcommittee. 

Residents are also evaluated through attendance, preparedness for and participation at rounds and teaching sessions including academic half-days, Journal Clubs, Grand Rounds, procedural training and EM Simulation sessions (adult and pediatric). Procedural and clinical case logs are maintained to identify gaps and direct supplementary educational topic coverage. Oral and written examinations are administered throughout the year.  

Each resident is assigned a faculty advisor. Bi-annual meetings are held to discuss progress, career plans, etc.

Residents have formal reviews with the Program Director and Assistant Program Director at the mid-point of the academic year, and at the end of training.

Formal resident evaluation and progress is also discussed at the quarterly Emergency Medicine Residency Training Committee meetings.
