Residency program directors learn how to meet accreditation standards for the design and conduct of their residency program. Review requirements for each of the nine steps of the residency learning system process. Use criteria checklists to critique sample (or your own) components of a residency program, such as purpose statements, program structure, learning and assessment activities and customized plans and get examples to use as guides. Practice key required skills, including giving effective feedback, applying clinical teaching skills, designing preceptor development plans and other program improvement strategies. Areas frequently cited on accreditation surveys will be identified and given special emphasis.

Bring materials from your program for critique and possible revision during the workshop.

You must pre-register by May 29 and be a full Summer Meeting registrant to attend.

Learning Objectives:

  1. In examples, determine if components of a residency program (purpose statements, selection of elective outcomes, program structure) meet accreditation standards, and common reasons they don’t.
  2. Determine appropriate learning activities for specified learning experiences and objectives.
  3. In cases, provide effective criteria-based formative and summative assessment feedback, as well as feedback to help a resident improve self-assessment skills.
  4. Evaluate information about a specified resident to determine their customized plan and modify the plan based on an assessment of their progress.
  5. Apply effective precepting skills, including orientation and clinical teaching and identify problems and solutions related to the residency program quality improvement process, including preceptor development.
