New Resident Evaluation Summary Format

In response to the Next Accreditation System (NAS) that is being implemented by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR) has revised the resident evaluation summary. The new format will be used automatically for all evaluations submitted online June 2, 2014, and beyond. Take a look at the new form.

The new evaluation features:

  • Ratings of "unsatisfactory progress" or "satisfactory progress" in each of the core competencies (elimination of the numerical rating system)
  • Simple statements to indicate whether resident has completed required number of weeks during the training period
  • Web-based format

*Certification is a voluntary process by which the ABPMR grants recognition to a physician specialist who has met predetermined qualifications specified by the ABPMR. Many qualities are necessary to be a competent physician, and many of these qualities cannot be quantified or measured. Thus, certification is not a guarantee of the competence of the physician specialist.
