Resident evaluation

Periodic in-training evaluation of trainees should be carried out to ensure that the trainee is making satisfactory progress. Both formal examinations and performance ratings by the faculty can be utilized and the trainee should be personally appraised of his or her strengths and weaknesses at appropriate intervals at least twice annually. Completion by the program director of resident yearly report forms, such as those requested by the American Board of Dermatology and other certifying boards, is an important part of this evaluation process.

One measure of the quality of a program is the performance of its graduates on the certifying examination of the American Board of Dermatology.
