The ACGME requires that programs create a final, competency-based, summative evaluation for each resident completing or leaving a program. This final evaluation should summarize the resident’s training record with the program and must verify that the resident is competent to practice independently. Many specialty boards provide or describe the exact form or language required for final evaluations. In addition, your specialty board may require that the program director send a letter to the board confirming that each graduating resident has completed all requirements and is board-eligible. Check with your specialty board for exact language requirements.

This tip is from the Residency Coordinator’s Handbook, Second Edition, by Ruth H. Nawotniak, MS, C-TAGME.
