Semi-Annual Review

The ACGME requires a semi-annual performance review meeting to discuss each resident’s progress toward goals and objectives for the year. As programs implement more resident evaluations, it will be essential to summarize the data on key outcomes and compare performance to the resident’s goals or benchmarks. The Task Force recommends a progress report following the template illustrated below. The progress report should be prepared in advance of the semi-annual meeting, ideally by having evaluation data electronically populate the Performance Measures for each resident. Residents would review the report and come prepared to discuss their progress with the program director or designee. If a portfolio-based system is used the resident would also provide evidence of learning they selected for showcasing.
