Evaluation of a resident’s understanding of a specific topic will be reviewed (in part) at the time of the operation during resident-faculty interaction. Feedback will be verbal and immediate.
At the end of each rotation, residents will be evaluated by faculty, in writing, based upon the programs goals and objectives and ACGME core competencies. Additional evaluations will be conducted by the faculty to measure each resident's operative skill performance.
Residents, in turn, will evaluate faculty’s teaching and education efforts. They will also evaluate each rotation at its conclusion.
Questions or comments can be directed to Vera Phelan, Resident Program Coordinator at (615) 343-9202 or to Dr. Putnam, Program Director at (615) 343-9202.
