Performance Feedback and Evaluations
Ongoing performance feedback and evaluations are a critical part of the teaching and career development process for trainees specializing in pediatric hematology-oncology. Each fellow is given both formative feedback during rotations and summative evaluations at the end of rotations. During their research years, fellows receive evaluations from their primary research mentor and quality improvement project coach. Fellows also give feedback anonymously to the clinical and research faculty.
Fellows have an opportunity to provide anonymous feedback about each rotation.
Evaluations are submitted electronically using MedHub implemented by Baylor College of Medicine and fellows can access their evaluations at any time.
Fellows also receive formal evaluations from nurses, social workers, and continuity patients. receive feedback on conference presentations and diagnostic talks.
Progress Reviews with Chief of Service and Program Director
Fellows meet with the Program Director and Clinical Competency Committee semi-annually to review their clinical milestones, evaluations from faculty and staff, and their Individualized Learning Plans (ILPs).
In addition, each fellow meets with Chief of Service, Dr. Susan Blaney, for career development meetings throughout their fellowship.
Monthly Group Discussions
Drs. Blaney, Lee-Kim and Steuber and the Chief Fellow meet with the fellows as a group on a monthly basis to address programmatic issues and to discuss their fellowship experience. All fellows are invited to attend the monthly Program Evaluation Committee meetings to contribute to the discussion around any curriculum changes.
