Most residency programs review their goals and objectives once a year during their annual program review. When reviewing your goals, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do the goals and objectives address all competencies? Which ones are addressed? Which are missing?
  • Do they reflect the six core competencies?
  • Are all goals relevant to the program?
  • Do competencies or skills need to be added?
  • Do the goals and objectives reflect the most recent ACGME expectations?
  • Does the program effectively measure and document residents' success meeting the stated goals?

 More information about reviewing goals and objectives can be found in Insider's Guide to ACGME Site Visit, Second Edition, by Kathryn Andolsek, MD, MPH, and Shepard Cohen, available here.
