The Kaiser Permanente San Diego Family Medicine Residency created a process to evaluate residents on procedural competency.
The residency faculty first agreed on a list of required outpatient procedures and on specific steps required to complete a given procedure competently.
The objective measuring tools were created to evaluate a resident performing a specific procedure.
Residents were informed about the procedural requirements and the review process.
The resident and faculty review the assessment tool together following each procedure performed.
Multiple faculty evaluate each resident for a given procedure.
Once a resident receives the agreed upon number of completed procedures with a “passed” rating, they are deemed competent.
The Clinical Competency Committee and the Minor Surgery Clinic faculty provide written updates to review with the resident.
The residents and faculty have provided feedback on this process.#evaluation #Competency #ProceduralTraining #STFMAnnualSpringConference #2017 #Procedures
