Evaluation is an essential function of residency training and the Department of Anesthesiology. Comprehensive, confidential feedback is provided semi-annually to each resident by the program director or assigned designee.

Components of the evaluation include:

  • Conference attendance
  • Scores on faculty-developed multiple choice questions, based on lecture blocks and assigned book chapters
  • Scores on ABA-ASA In-Training Exam, administered annually
  • CA-1 scores on Anesthesia Knowledge Test at one month
  • Written evaluations of each resident submitted by faculty at the end of rotations. Competency evaluations are based upon rotation and level-specific goals and objectives, knowledge base and clinical skills
  • Written evaluations of CA-3 and CA-2 resident performance on the mock oral exam
  • Written evaluations of CA-3 resident senior project
  • 360o evaluations by non-physician staff

The residency program and the Department of Anesthesiology are committed to continuous improvement and use multiple sources of feedback, including:

  • Annual program evaluations completed by residents, fellows and faculty
  • Annual post-graduation program evaluations completed by alumni
  • Annual faculty evaluations completed by residents and fellows
  • Evaluation of program graduates by employers
  • Weekly didactic conference evaluations by residents, fellows and faculty
  • Internal review by the institution's Graduate Medical Education Committee
