For categories with a “frequently exceeds standards” score, residents should be acknowledged and commended. Suggestions for improvement with a reasonable time frame should be addressed for categories with a “needs improvement” or “fails to achieve expectations/standards” score. There should be evidence of improvement at the time of the next evaluation. If an overall score of “fails to achieve expectations/standards” is given at any time, a review of the resident is required to determine whether the resident will continue in his/her program.
