Residents are required to undergo periodic evaluation, as per the Council on Podiatric Medical Education Guidelines. These evaluations are used not only to evaluate the residents, but also to evaluate and assess the capabilities of meeting the competencies established for these rotations by the instructors/supervisors. The director of the specific rotation and/or their designee provides the evaluation through observation of the resident. Evaluation forms are open to inspection by the individual resident, the director and the Council on Podiatric Medical Education. Residents are recommended to periodically review their evaluations and to appeal or remediate as is necessary. Upon satisfactory completion of all mandatory rotations and demonstrated clinical and surgical competence, the resident is awarded a certificate verifying completion of the training program.
