Gauging performance through clinical competency

Gauging Performance

Clinical competency is a necessary step toward board certification. Evaluations of clinical competence should be submitted for each resident and fellow in January and July of each year they are enrolled.

During residency and fellowship training, program faculty instruct and observe physicians to help them develop the following qualities, which are essential to becoming board certified:

  • Demonstrates high standards of ethical and moral behavior
  • Demonstrates honesty, integrity, reliability, and responsibility
  • Learns from experience; knows limits
  • Reacts to stressful situations in an appropriate manner
  • Has no documented current abuse of alcohol or illegal use of drugs
  • Has no cognitive or physical impairment that precludes acquiring and processing information in an independent and timely manner without accommodation or with reasonable accommodation
  • Demonstrates respect for the dignity of patients and colleagues, and sensitivity to a diverse patient population
