The evaluation process
Regular verbal feedback is an integral part of the training experience. Formal online evaluations are completed by the responsible supervising attendings, nurses and social workers at the conclusion of each rotation or on a quarterly basis.
Residents meet with the program director twice each year to review their progress, assess their caseload and discuss any concerns.
