Orthopaedic Residency/Fellowship 2019 CSM Pre-conference Course

Clinical Excellence and Quality Standards in Residency and Fellowship Education
Wednesday, January 23, 2019


Successful administration of residency and fellowship training programs is more complex than ever. This 1-day course will assist accredited and developing residency & fellowship programs with becoming compliant with the new ABPTRFE quality standards in 2020! Are you prepared to “teach out”, compliant with “patient and director outcomes”, “faculty feedback”, or managing failure from “remediation to termination” and much more? Whether you are an established residency/fellowship program looking to update compliance with the new criteria, an established program that needs to go through re-accreditation in the near future, or a developing program just getting started, we can help! The speakers will discuss strategies to assist programs in integration and implementation of the new standards. In addition, the speakers and participants will have the unique opportunity to discuss areas of the accreditation process, e.g. curriculum and faculty development, resident/fellow mentoring as well as training of the resident/fellow mentor. This interactive and engaging course will combine presentations with round table discussion to meet the below objectives. Come and learn from colleagues who are program directors and active in the accreditation process!
