Formal and Informal Performance Evaluations. Trainees participate in formal and informal performance evaluations, as well as feedback conferences, throughout all rotations in the training program. These mutual evaluations are accomplished electronically using the E*Value program implemented by Baylor College of Medicine. Formal evaluations of conference presentations, clinical rotations, and overall performance reports are reviewed with the trainee on a regular basis.
Bi-annual Progress Reviews with Chief of Service and Program Directors. In addition, each fellow meets twice yearly with the Chief of Service, Dr. David Poplack, and the program coordinators, Dr. Phil Steuber and Dr. Youngna Lee-Kim. They review the fellows’ evaluations and overall progress as well as their Individualized Learning Programs (ILPs).
Monthly Group Discussions. Drs. Poplack, Lee-Kim, and Steuber meet with the fellows as a group on a monthly basis to address programmatic issues. These meetings provide fellows with an opportunity to discuss issues regarding the curriculum and its implementation. The meetings also serve as a forum to resolve issues that are identified as impediments to the learning experience.
