With an overall goal of program improvement in mind during an internal review, internal review committee chairs and program directors should give residents the knowledge to critique their programs. During the interview with the internal review chair, have residents identify strengths and weaknesses in the program to give the committee insight into areas to review further.

Prepare residents to give this guidance by providing them with copies of the Common and specialty Program Requirements. Let residents know about past residency review committee citations, so they can give insight into ongoing corrections to these problems.

If more time outside the scheduled interview timeframe is warranted, the internal review chair should arrange for a second interview to gather information and conduct a complete analysis.

This week’s tip is from Internal Review Made Simple by Robin Graham, MD, FACS.
