The site visitor will most likely want to review the following items:
• Your resident manual with written goals and objectives linked to the core competencies
• Policies and procedures, including criteria for promotion or dismissal
• Duty-hour documentation
• Didactic conference schedules
• Resident attendance roster for conferences
• Resident scholarly activities
• Resident folders, audited to ensure that each resident’s folder contains the semiannual evaluations, rotational evaluations, and summative evaluations
• Procedure logs
• In-training exam scores
• Graduate performance on specialty board exams.

This week’s question and answer are from The Residency Program Director’s Handbook, by Robert V. Higgins, MD.
