Evaluation of performance
The resident is evaluated quarterly by the Program Director and core faculty. At that time the various rotation evaluations of the resident are reviewed with the resident. Along with program requirements such as logs, annual paper, time sheets and service evaluations. The Program Director then submits to the ACOEP an annual report reviewing the resident's progress.
The resident maintains a monthly log of his or her activity. Rotation includes:
- a list of readings
- cases seen (of special interest)
- special procedures performed
- lectures attended for that month's rotation
These logs are submitted to the Residency Program Director by the second Wednesday following the end of the rotation. Logs are required by the AOA, ACOEP, Beaumont, Farmington Hills and the department of Emergency Medicine. This simplifies maintaining an orderly list of procedures provided after the residency to credentialing committees. It is not necessary for the resident keep a log of common emergency department procedures (flourescein staining of cornea, repair of simple laceration).
