Background

The Resident Evaluation of the Attending Consultant was approved in 2003 by both the Specialty and Core Residency Training Committees. The form was implemented into a web based evaluation system in VENTIS.

Objective

VENTIS allows residents to anonymously evaluate attending physicians in multiple domains. The intent behind collecting and reporting this information is to provide comparative and reasonably detailed feedback to all full-time and part-time faculty.

Process

  1. The residents will complete electronic evaluations on attendings through VENTIS.
  2. Residents will anonymously evaluate attendings with whom they have had significant contact (five days or more) during a rotation.
  3. To allow residents to confidently and freely evaluate attendings, the Core and specialty programs will not share the resident evaluation of the attending consultant with the Postgraduate Program Directors or any section members.
  4. Aggregate reports of the evaluation forms will be collated and analyzed every two years by the Department Head. Resident anonymity and confidentiality will be maintained.
  5. Complete data for all members of a particular section will be provided to the Section Head and the Postgraduate Program Directors.
  6. Reports will not be available for attending physicians who have had less than five complete evaluations.
  7. Incomplete evaluation forms will not be included in the report.
  8. These evaluations will become part of the attending’s permanent record.
  9. The reports will provide the basis for identifying outstanding performers who will be recognized by annual teaching awards:
  10. In order to protect the anonymity of the residents, individual evaluation results will not be shared for any reason with faculty, trainees, Postgraduate Program Directors or Section Heads.
