Through discussions between Family Medicine and the Pediatric Emergency Medicine initiated by Dr. Denice Lewis, the evaluation of competencies in Pediatric Emergency Medicine for family medicine residents have been added to the eField Note system to ensure these competencies are effectively captured. The new “Emergency Room Care” sub-component can be found under the “Care of Children & Adolescents” Curriculum Domain.
May is a busy month! Our PGY2s have written their exams and the faculty are undergoing annual reviews. Assessment is a tool that helps us to review, reflect and learn. One task I enjoy every year is meeting with faculty members to review their accomplishments. This is a time when I can see how much work everyone does that is unseen! Another assessment tool is the CFPC Family Medicine Longitudinal Survey. Thank you to our residents for responding - The information can be so helpful to our planning and ensuring the program meets your needs.
