What is the role of the program coordinator (PC) in the clinical competency committee (CCC)? He or she cannot be an active voting member of the committee, but will play an active role in organizing and managing the CCC alongside the chair. The PC will not have the opportunity to voice an opinion when the CCC members are discussing residents during their meetings, but in most programs, the PC does have the opportunity to participate in the 360-degree evaluation. If the PC has completed evaluations on the residents in the program, then the committee will consider his or her opinion by way of the evaluation.

The PC is tasked with keeping the CCC on track with scheduling meetings, compiling the documentation needed, recording the minutes, etc. In most cases, the PC is considered the data source expert. This person helps CCC members gather and interpret the data that is reviewed at the meetings. Many programs also trust their PCs to record the Milestone reporting data directly into ADS, as PCs are most familiar with the database. The PC role should be discussed and defined with the chair of the CCC.
