Editor’s Note: The following is an excerpt from The Residency Program Director’s Handbook, Second Edition. For more information about this book, click here.

The most common method of measuring a program’s strengths and weaknesses comes in survey form. For an individual lecture, learners can easily provide their opinion and constructive suggestions in the form of a single session evaluation. It is recommended that residents complete an evaluation for every scheduled learning activity they participate in. When assessing clinical rotations, valuable resident reaction information can be gleaned from rotation evaluations, as residents are required to evaluate their clinical rotation, their teaching faculty members, and the stressors associated with the rotation. ACGME and institutional surveys, as well as annual program evaluations, can provide additional global information regarding the program’s educational curriculum quality. Finally, graduate surveys can provide the perspective on opportunities to improve the residents’ preparedness for practice.
