You should include the following in your residents' folder:

  • Rotation evaluations (global assessments)
  • Procedure logs (ideally benchmarked to RRC and board requirements and compared to colleagues at the same level in the same program)
  • Portfolio elements
  • Documentation of resident's twice-yearly resident assessments with program directors
  • In-service training exam scores
  • Other required performance assessment
  • Self-assessments
  • Patient satisfaction surveys or other feedback from patients
  • 360 evaluations
  • Curriculum vitae
  • List of conferences attended
  • Evidence of scholarly activity
  • Any activity or project in which the resident participated
