The ACGME mandated the creation of program evaluation committees to evaluate all educational aspects of accredited residency programs through an annual program evaluation. Yet requirements for the program evaluation committee are broad and seemingly vague, making it difficult to put together a proper committee and evaluation. The Program Evaluation Committee Handbook: From Annual Program Evaluation to Self-Study will guide you through building an effective program evaluation committee, mastering the annual program evaluation process, and creating action plans to improve your program.
This book will help you:
- Launch an effective program evaluation committee
- Examine and complete the five areas of focus required by the ACGME
- Conduct the annual program evaluation
- Identify the strengths and weaknesses of your program and develop an action plan for improvement
- Understand the broad and loosely defined requirements for the program evaluation committee
