As part of your summative evaluation assessment, outline what it takes for a resident to be promoted from program year one to program year two, and then for each subsequent year in training. You should also outline the criteria for successful completion of your program.

You promotion criteria may include:

  • Passing grades in each rotation
  • Successful attainment of procedural competencies as evident by performing a determined number of procedures
  • Attendance at a defined number of didactics
  • Teaching a determined number of conferences
  • Completing a defined task, like research projects or quality improvement project

More information about summative evaluations can be found in Insider's Guide to ACGME Survey Prep, by Kathryn Andolsek, MD, MPH, and Shepard Cohen available here.
