Determine how to answer medical knowledge questions on the program information form (PIF) by considering the following questions:

  • In addition to regular didactic conferences and results of the in-training exam, are you using the simulation center on an OSCE to evaluate medical knowledge?
  • Do you hold board-review conferences?
  • Do you play a trivia game or board game to test your residents’ knowledge?
  • Do you played a Jeopardy! Game with another residency program, such as pediatrics versus OB/GYN or internal medicine versus psychiatry?
  • Are residents using self-directed learning modules such as Medical Knowledge Self Assess Program, Pediatrics Review and Education Program, MedStudy, or Web-based learning modules?
  • Do residents have individual learning plans?
  • What workshops have residents attended?


Today’s question and answer is an excerpt from Program Information Form Made Simple: A Guide to Completing the ACGME PIF by Jeri Whitten, C-TAGME, published by HCPro, Inc.
