Abstract

We compared the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Outcome Project to the long-standing requirement of the American Board of Anesthesiology for a Clinical Competence Committee Report. There are many similarities between these two systems of resident evaluation. However, the ACGME Outcome Project requires the use of more numerous and diverse metrics when compared with the traditional global evaluation alone. In addition, the Clinical Competence Committee Report is primarily a summative evaluation for the purpose of assigning credit for training. The ACGME Outcome Project may be used as a component of a summative evaluation, but the primary emphasis is on formative assessment.
