The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to an excellence in residency training. To achieve and maintain this level of excellence, residents are evaluated by faculty, nurses, colleagues, and patients. At each semi-annual review, these written, confidential evaluations are individually reviewed with each resident by the Program director and are kept on file for assessment of progress towards the six ACGME competencies. Residents proceed through the program by accepting graduated levels of responsibility as deemed appropriate.
Technical skills are assessed by faculty in certain key procedures. Residents are expected to keep accurate patient case data lists using the ACGME case log system.
In order to continually improve the program and educational experience, residents are also asked to evaluate faculty and the program annually.
