Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation





Evaluation of Resident Educational Progress

Written Examinations:

Residents will take written and/or oral examinations at the completion of each didactic course. These examinations will total approximately four per academic year.

All PGY-2, PGY-3, and PGY-4 residents will take the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Self-Assessment Examination for Residents (SAE-R) each year. All PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents shall also take the American Association of Electrodiagnostic Medicine’s In Training Exam on Electrodiagnosis each year. The SAEs are helpful in that they expose residents to the testing format used by the AAPM&R for professional certification at the conclusion of the residency program.

An additional practical evaluation of electrodiagnosis skills will occur at the end of each academic year. Expected proficiency is based on resident academic year.

Clinical Evaluation Procedures:

In addition to written exams, each resident’s clinical knowledge and skills are formally evaluated by senior residents and attending faculty via a clinical ratings format. Such ratings occur at various times throughout each rotation, with emphasis on both formative and summative feedback. This is intended to be a collegial, collaborative process. Residents also are expected to provide feedback to faculty on their teaching skills, as well as on the overall residency program.
