Evaluation & Feedback

Dartmouth offers a positive and supportive learning environment for trainees with a career interest in General Internal Medicine.

The faculty are enthusiastic teachers, and the Section of General Medicine is highly regarded among their colleagues, thus creating a respectful environment that is conducive to professional growth.

An effective evaluation and feedback system is critical to the success of the PCT, and serves to help residents, faculty and the Program Director recognize strengths and improve weaknesses.

The Primary Care and Categorical tracks have identical approaches to evaluation and feedback. Both use a Web-based electronic evaluation system, direct meetings with supervising faculty, biannual meetings with the program director, inservice written exams (to assess preparedness for Internal Medicine Boards), and informal mentoring and feedback sessions with faculty.

The Program Director actively solicits and responds to feedback from the residents regarding the program's educational activities, including meetings with program leadership approximately twice a year. Resident feedback is an essential component of quality improvement and curriculum development.
