VI. COMPETENCY AND PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS: PROCEDURES FOR ADDRESSING PERFORMANCE DISAGREEMENTS

EVALUATION OF DIDACTIC INSTRUCTION

Policy on Attendance at Didactics

Attendance at didactic lectures is mandatory.  Residents who cannot attend (on-call the previous night, vacation, sick leave, etc.) will be excused.  Residents are responsible for documenting their attendance by filling out the “record of attendance” part of the didactic teaching assessment form, and returning it to the Residency Training Office.  All Residents whose attendance falls below 85% of the lectures that they are required to attend (i.e. the “unexcused” lectures) will be reviewed by the RESC.  The RESC may impose the following sanctions:
    • a letter of reprimand, a copy of which will be entered into the Resident’s academic file.
    • delay of the decision to allow advancement.  (The Resident will be notified in writing of the delay, and of the date on which his/her performance will be reviewed; the Resident will not receive his/her contract for renewal until a final decision for advancement is made.)
The Resident may also be required to obtain reading materials on the didactic subjects taught in his/her absence, and to sit for an oral or written examination on this material.  The sanctions mentioned above may be made contingent upon failure to pass this exam.

Evaluation Procedures

Residents should obtain a Didactic Teaching Assessment and Record of Attendance Form at the beginning of each lecture (Appendix I).  Completed evaluations are returned to the Residency Program Office; in order for the data to be condensed and mailed to the Didactic Program Annual Coordinators (PGY-1: Drs. Marcella Pascualy and Tom Soeprono, PGY-2: Dr. Aaron Green, PGY-3: Dr. Matthew Schreiber, PGY-4: Drs. Catherine Howe and Katherine Michaelson).  The Annual Coordinators give feedback to the lecturers.  Evaluations are forwarded with the Resident’s Attendance Form removed, i.e. anonymously.  Evaluations of didactic lectures are taken very seriously and are used to improve the didactic program, as well as to evaluate faculty teaching for promotion.

(Policy approved by the RESC  on 6/1/87, reviewed 10/1/98 and 1/7/99; approved 5/5/99, modified 5/12/2016)
