Rationale

Self-assessment is important for residents in order to assess how far they have come, what they have learned and what they have accomplished and also to reflect on what they would like to improve on and focus on.  It also aids in helping residents set goals and assess progress towards meeting these goals.  To this end, residents will complete five formal assessments of their learning, in addition to their self-evaluations for rotations, presentations and procedure logs.  These assessments are based on the Residency Program Competencies. 

1. Self-Assessment of Prior Learning
IH Policies

  1. Residents will complete a Self-Assessment of Previous Experiences and Learning upon acceptance into the Program.  This self-assessment will provide the Program Coordinator with important information about residents' previous experiential rotation experiences and work experience, their program and career goals, their learning style and preferences for elective rotations and vacation.  This information will be used by the Program Coordinator to develop the residents' rotation schedules.
  2. Residents will complete a Self-Assessment of Prior Learning during their Program Orientation Rotation.  This assessment is based on the Residency Program Competencies and associated requirements.
  3. The Self-Assessment of Prior Learning will be sent to the resident via one45 at the beginning of their Program Orientation Rotation.
  4. Residents will complete this self assessment in one45.
  5. The Program Coordinator will review the assessment and will discuss it with the resident at their first Meeting with the Program Coordinator.

2. Resident Personal Residency Program Objectives
IH Policies

  1. Residents will outline their residency program objectives during their Program Orientation     Rotation.  When formulating these objectives, residents should consider their previous experience, why they decided to complete a residency and what they would like to accomplish during the residency year.  For each objective, the resident will also outline the steps they will take to achieve the objective.
  2. The Resident Personal Residency Program Objectives form will be sent to the resident via one45 at the beginning of their Program Orientation Rotation.
  3. The Program Coordinator will discuss these objectives with the resident at their first Meeting with the Program Coordinator and throughout the residency year.

3. Resident Career Objectives
IH Policies

  1. Residents will outline their career objectives during their Program Orientation Rotation.  When formulating these objectives, residents should consider their previous experience, why they decided to complete a residency and what they are hoping to accomplish during the residency year.  They should also consider the aspirations that they have for themselves when they have completed their residency.  Their career objectives may change throughout the residency year, as they gain more experience and exposure to different types of pharmacy practice.
  2. The Resident Career Objectives form will be sent to the resident via one45 at the beginning of their Program Orientation Rotation.  
  3. The Program Coordintor will discuss these objectives with the resident at their first Meeting with the Program Coordinator and throughout their residency year.    

4. Formative Self-Assessments of Learning
IH Policies

  1. Residents will complete three Formative Self-Assessment of Learning in October, January and March during their residency year.  The purpose of these assessments is to assess the resident’s progress towards meeting the Residency Program Competencies, and associated requirements, and to identify areas for further focus during the residency year.  This will also be a place to reflect on rotation experiences and residency program activities and to document pearls and reflect on learning related to these experiences.
  2. The Formative Self-Assessments of Learning will be sent to the resident in October, January and March via one45.
  3. Residents will complete these self assessments in one45.
  4. The Program Coordinator will review these assessments and will discuss them with the resident at a Meeting with the Program Coordinator.

5. Summative Self-Assessment of Learning
IH Policies

  1. Residents will complete a Summative Self-Assessment of Learning within one week of the end of their residency program.  The purpose of this assessment is to assess the resident’s achievement of the Residency Program Competencies and associated requirements.
  2. The Summative Self-Assessment of Learning will be sent to the resident at end of the residency year via one45 by the Program Coordinator.
  3. Residents will complete this self assessment in one45.
  4. The Program Coordinator will review the assessment.
