How Do We Track Resident Performance?


Evaluations 

At the end of each block rotation, you will receive a written and verbal evaluation from the attending(s) with whom you worked most closely. As a PGY-1, your attending will also need to complete a "mid-rotation" evaluation, designed to provide you with feedback midway through the experience so you can remedy whatever concerns may be identified. Our residents have found this extremely helpful. Furthermore, you will complete a self-evaluation of your skills on a quarterly basis.

Procedure Cards 

Family Medicine physicians provide myriad services within their offices. Additionally, when you are searching for a job upon completion of residency, various clinic and hospital credentialing committees require that you show both a sufficient quantity and sufficient training in performance of a variety of procedures before granting you the privilege to do it in your practice. Therefore, we require you to show competency in 17 commonly performed office based procedures before you graduate. 

University Affiliations 

Carle Family Medicine Residency is affiliated with the Carle Illinois College of Medicine at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Professional Development

The Discovery Pathway offers residents a unique opportunity to grow their strengths as future physician innovators and leaders. This high-impact, integrated program is specifically designed to let residents tailor their professional development opportunities to the interests and expertise that’ll become central to their careers as future pioneers in healthcare.
