Depending on the size of your program, preparation for the clinical competency committee (CCC) meeting can be very extensive. To make sure you’re ready, start compiling evaluation data approximately three months prior to the CCC meeting.

One of your committee’s first tasks is to determine what data will be used to evaluate each resident and how far in advance the members would like to receive that information. Data for the meeting may include the following:

  • Aggregate reports—Milestone evaluations
  • 360-degree evaluations
  • Case logs/procedure logs
  • Learning portfolios
  • Scholarly activity, research projects
  • Publications and presentations
  • In-training exam scores
  • Objective structured clinical examinations
  • Simulation lab scores
  • Compliance with program, department, and institution requirements, such as the following:
    • Conference attendance
    • Basic life support/advanced cardiac life support certification
    • Respirator mask fitting
  • Quality improvement projects
  • Participation in a root cause analysis
  • Reporting of near-misses or patient safety events reporting
  • Participation in local, regional, or national committees
  • Reflective essays from the residents
