Cleveland, OH 44195

Course Overview

This 2-day course targets graduate medical educators and faculty and will focus on learner assessment within competency based educational frameworks. The course will feature interactive workshops on topics such as principles of feedback, verbal and written feedback for performance improvement, and principles of direct observation. The course includes a 3-hour session on frame of reference training, a recommended practice in rater training. Participants will also have the opportunity to be observed providing feedback within simulation scenarios and will receive targeted, formative feedback to hone their own skills in this area.

Who Should Attend

We invite all who are seeking to learn how to create a culture within the clinical learning environment which promotes ongoing constructive feedback. Constructive feedback aids in the trainee's development by providing expectations for meeting the milestones and methods for improving performance.

The target audience is residency and fellowship program directors, associate program directors, chairs and members of Clinical Competency Committees (CCCs), designated institutional officials (DIOs), and any faculty members with major responsibility for the assessment of residents/fellows.

By Attending, You Will Be Able To:

  • Acquire and practice the skills for providing effective verbal and written feedback for performance improvement
  • Develop skills related to competency based assessment in the milestone era
  • Discuss the application of technology in modern assessment systems
