Clinical Competency Committees Made Simple

ACGME-accredited programs are required to establish a clinical competency committee (CCC) to evaluate their residents—a task made even more complicated by the lack of guidance on how to properly run a CCC.

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Get the inside scoop from GME program officials at the Cleveland Clinic who have successfully established their CCCs. This book will help you take the tools you are already using—such as an evaluation/promotion committee and resident evaluation forms—and shape them to meet the ACGME requirements for CCCs and Milestone reporting.

Clinical Competency Committees Made Simple provides clear processes, guidelines, and sample tools for building a successful and lasting CCC. Reduce unnecessary burden on committee members and program administrators while also meeting the ACGME requirements for CCCs.

This book will help you:

  • Customize a CCC for your residency program
  • Understand why CCCs have been put into place
  • Properly evaluate your residents using Milestones
  • Teach faculty members and residents the importance of CCCs and Milestones
  • Write a policy regarding the functions of your CCC
