CREOG Competency Presentations

The CREOG Competency Task Force, funded by The American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, Development Fund, was vested with the responsibility of bridging the work of the Ob-Gyn RRC and residency program directors.

The Task Force developed examples of assessment methods that are appropriate and feasible for use by Ob-Gyn residency programs. These work products should not be considered as prescriptions for the only way to accomplish Outcome Project goals, but as examples of tools that might be used by programs as a starting point in their development of reliable assessment tools.

The initial work of the Task Force was presented at the CREOG and APGO Annual Meeting in March 2003. Initial and updated presentations are listed below by date. The most recent presentation, The New PIF: Implications & Strategies, was presented at the March 2009 CREOG and APGO Meeting.

Due to several requests, a primary care chart audit form and survey, from Drexel University College of Medicine is being included with the tools below. Drexel University College of Medicine developed these tools to be in compliance with the latest RRC monitoring of ambulatory activity. They have found that this form not only satisfies the RRC requirement, but also is an excellent review for the residents of their strengths and weaknesses in ambulatory charting. They have the PGY1 and PGY2 charts audited by the attending and then reviewed with the resident. They let the PGY3 & PGY4 residents perform a self analysis and then review with the attending. This is a great way to begin their process of self reflection which will become important for the MOC of the ABOG. Drexel University College of Medicine now incorporate this form as the 4th page of our semi-annual evaluation form.
