Interviewing faculty members during an internal review can be the toughest interview for GMEC members. Structure interview questions to ask the tough questions about a program.

Avoid “yes” and “no” questions and instead ask interviewees about how things work in the program as they relate to goals and objectives. Measure this information against ACGME requirements to see how the program stacks up.

Ask faculty members how the program director is correcting citations. Throughout the interview, don’t be afraid to educate faculty members on program requirements. Make sure to finish each interview by asking the faculty member what you can do to help support his or her role in the program.

This week’s tip is from The Graduate Medical Education Committee Handbook by Vicki Hamm and Christine Redovan, MBA.
