A 360-degree evaluation is an effective way to evaluate your staff and residents accurately. Your institution has the freedom to create and distribute any number of evaluations you see fit. In conducting these reviews, you can document the progression of each resident, as well as the organization, faculty, and patients in satisfaction. The following procedure is how this well-rounded evaluation might operate:

• Faculty evaluates the residents
• Residents evaluate the faculty
• Residents evaluate the program
• Program directors evaluate the residents
• Patients evaluate the residents
• Residents evaluate each other
• Residents evaluate themselves

Evaluations help hospital growth to succeed, but, for the development of residents, evaluating themselves is critical for success. Effective, confident residents should recognize their strengths and weaknesses to achieve and perform to their utmost potential.


This week’s tip comes from The Residency Coordinator's Handbook, by Dianna Otterstad, BA.
