Methods of Assessment
 

1. Each attending physician and selected hostpital staff complete a quarterly evaluation of the fellow. The program director reviews these evaluations and discusses them with the fellow at the biannual evaluation.

2. Twice a year, the fellow has a mandatory conference with the program director. During this meeting, evaluations and operative case logs are reviewed. The fellow will also provide an assessment of the program. Discussion will cover the above topics as well as future plans and goals.

3. Attendance at teaching conferences is mandatory. The full-time faculty will systematically evaluate participation and quality of participation at teaching conferences. The fellow will receive feedback in this area at the biannual evaluations.

4. The full-time faculty will also systematically review participation and quality of participation in patient rounds and scrubbed-in operating room attendance. The fellow will receive feedback in this area at the biannual evaluations.

5. Each fellow must accurately complete and submit a summary of operative experience in December and June. The chairman and program director review the operative experience report biannually.

6. Residents will be expected to complete faculty assessments annually. The program director and chairman review these results. Each faculty member receives a summary report to discuss results with the fellow.

7. Resident program and faculty evaluations are critical to the teaching program's continued improvement, and are taken seriously. These evaluations are usually anonymous, but may be done in person if desired. The program director is also always immediately available should there be any professional or personal problems that need immediate attention.
