Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Colorectal Surgery Fellowship
Policies & Procedures


The resident written evaluations will be compiled for review on a biannual basis. Residents may review their evaluations at any time by requesting such a review with the program director and/or associate program director. Residents may not remove evaluations from the file, copy evaluations, or alter evaluations. Quarterly reviews will be held with each resident to review their performance and case numbers to provide appropriate constructive feedback. Written summaries of the sessions will be maintained in the resident's file. A final written evaluation of the resident's performance will be prepared by the program director at the completion of the resident's training, and will be maintained indefinitely in the department.

The resident will meet with the program director on the first Tuesday of each month to review performance and discuss any pertinent issues.

Residents also have the opportunity to review their attendings, rotations, and the overall educational program. Evaluation forms of attendings and rotations will be provided to the residents on a periodic basis.

Finally, residents will be evaluated by office staff, nursing staff and patients to complete the residents overall evaluation.

* All policies and procedures for Fellow Selection, Evaluation, Promotion, and Dismissal are in compliance with both ACGME requirements and with the institutional policies and procedures of Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.
