Each resident is evaluated at the beginning and end of each rotation by his/her attending psychiatrists in the knowledge and practice of Addiction Psychiatry and in the six general competencies for all physicians, as outlined by the ACGME: Patient Care; Medical Knowledge; Practice-Based Learning; Interpersonal Skills; Professionalism; and Systems-Based Practice. Evaluations are based on direct observation of patient care and weekly supervision. Residents evaluate the quality of teaching by clinical attendings and lecturers. Residents are rated twice a year using Milestones in conjunction with these other evaluations.
Interview checklists, procedure logs, PRITE exams, mock boards, and an in-house multi-choice question exam are also used to evaluate the fellowship.
