Assessing to Competence

Frequent observation is a key component in resident learning and assessment.  Clinical teachers will observe trainee performance of entrustment activities and provide feedback to guide learning improvement.  Data from multiple assessments and observers will be aggregated over time to provide a clearer picture of a trainee’s performance and progress. This information is collected using an entrustment scale and will allow the competence committee to make informed decisions about resident promotion and remediation.
