Developing Faculty Competencies in Direct Observation and Feedback

Since 2019, Yale has been collaborating with ACGME to co-sponsor a regional faculty development course for academic faculty. In addition to an annual three-day course, which is a condensed version of the popular week-long ACGME course concentrated on assessment skills, we are pleased to offer a day-long course. This highly interactive skills course will cover how to improve direct observation and feedback. The target audience includes core faculty with major responsibility for assessment of clinical students, residents and fellows. Highlights of this highly experiential, hands-on course will include:

  • Behavioral observation - (how to observe)
  • Performance dimension training - (defining what you are looking for)
  • Rater calibration - (agreeing on what we are seeing)
  • Giving effective feedback
