EVALUATION OF ROTATIONS AND FACULTY MEMBERS
STATEMENT OF POLICY
Residents are required to provide an evaluation of each rotation, including an evaluation of the faculty involved in that rotation. In addition, they are required to complete an annual summary evaluation of their own residency program and its faculty. All evaluation forms and reports will be maintained within the E*Valve system.
- At the end of each rotation, the resident is provided with a confidential evaluation form. This evaluation form includes questions on the rotation’s content as well as the quality of supervision
(See appendix 2, http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/gmehandbook/appendix2/index.htm).
- The resident completes the form and returns it to the residency program coordinator.
- Residents will provide the Program Director with evaluations of the faculty member’s teaching skills. These evaluations will be provided by using the GMEC-approved forms
(See appendix 2, http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/gmehandbook/appendix2/index.htm). Each program is responsible for determining the procedure by which the resident will evaluate the faculty’s teaching skills.
- Once each year, the residents will meet as a group to review the entire residency program and submit a report of this evaluation to the Program Director. This annual evaluation will include but not be limited to, a) each faculty member’s supervision and teaching, b) eachrotation’s benefits or deficiencies for achieving the learning objectives, c) the quality of the didactic sessions, d) the quality of research and scholarly activity, e) the general working conditions, f) the leadership of the Program Director, g) the overall program goals and objectives, h) the ACGME six competency areas in relation to the curriculum and i) the resources available to the residents.
- To ensure proper anonymity of residents in completing these evaluations, Program Directors will provide each faculty member a “summary report” of the rotation evaluations. Programs with smaller numbers of residents are encouraged to have the residents complete group evaluations of individual faculty members. In other words, the residents meet as a group at least once a year but possibly every six months and develop one composite evaluation for each faculty member. Each resident then signs his/her name to each composite evaluation.
- Program Directors and faculty are expected to use the information collected to continually improve the quality of the program. To this end, the summary of the annual program evaluation should specifically highlight these program changes.
