Annual Program Review

Annual Program Review &
Annual Program Directors Update

During the Annual Program Review with the Department Chair and the Program Director, the Senior Associate Dean asks about the Departmental system established to ensure that residents may raise within the Department/Program issues regarding their educational experience and/or work environment without fear of intimidation or retaliation.

If suboptimal, examples of effective systems are reviewed and the leaders are asked to implement one that will be workable in their Program. These suggestions have been well received. Programs such as Radiology wherein the Chairman meets with the residents privately on a monthly basis (at each hospital - Moffit-Long, SFGH and VAMC) are used as "Best Practices". Follow-up is conducted as necessary for those with a new or evolving system.
