Resident Assessment

A Mid Rotation In-Training Evaluation (ITER) and End of Rotation ITER are formally completed for each field placement by the designated supervisor. ITER is designed to reflect the goals of training. The supervisor should discuss the results of this evaluation with the resident. ITERs for each rotation are kept in the resident’s file at the School.

At the end of each rotation, the resident will provide to the Program Coordinator spph.residency@ubc.ca additional completed documentation as follows:

• Rotation Specific Objectives (RSO) document
• Rotation Activity Report
• Resident Assessment of Field Rotation
• Rotation deliverables as set out in RSO document (ie article, report, Powerpoint Presentation)
