Performance Levels (Direct Patient Care)
The bulk of the residency year is comprised of direct patient care rotations. Residents' skills and knowledge are expected to develop longitudinally across these rotations. Residents are expected to consistently exhibit the attitudes and professional behaviour becoming of a healthcare professional throughout the program. The table immediately below describes the expected level of performance according to specific time points during the residency program. Please scroll further to see the rubrics used in resident evaluation.
Residents' knowledge and skills are evaluated using rubrics based on Bloom's taxonomy and the Dreyfus Model of Skill Aquisition, respectively. The levels of performance that we expect our residents will progress through are described in the tables below (both taxonomies describe higher levels of performance but residents typically would achieve these levels after completion of a residency).
