Transcript of "Gynecologic Oncology"

  1. 1. EDUCATIONAL GOALS AND OBJECTIVES GYNECOLOGIC ONCOLOGY PGY 4 Gynecologic Oncology Overview: The gynecologic oncology team is made up of one PGY 4 and either one PGY3 or PGY2 resident. PGY4 residents are assigned to the gynecological oncology service for four months. PGY3 residents are assigned to the gynecological oncology service for two months. PGY2 residents are assigned to the gynecological oncology service for two months. One full- time sub-specialty board certified gynecologic oncologist and two part time sub-specialty board certified gynecologic oncologists share supervisory duty. The full time faculty member is primarily responsible for the service. The teams develop diagnostic and therapeutic management plans in collaboration with the attending physician of record. Residents, medical students, nursing staff and the attending physicians will work together to provide the best patient care possible. Principle Teaching/Learning Activities: Morning Rounds (MR)– Residents and Medical Students work together to coordinate all patient data, prepare management plans and finish all necessary patient paperwork. Service Meeting (SM) – Residents, nursing staff, support staff and attending physicians meet weekly to assess patient needs, scheduling issues, and administrative issues. Principle Educational Goals by Relevant Competency: In the tables below, the principle educational goals for the Gynecological Oncology Service rotations are indicated for each of the 6 ACGME competencies. The second column of the table indicates the most relevant principle teach/learning activity for each goal, using the legend below: *Legend for Learning Activities (See above for description) DPC – Direct Patient Care EC – Education Conferences MR – Morning Rounds SM – Service Meeting CML – Computer Model Lab 1. Patient Care Principle Educational Goals Learning Activites* Interview patients more skillfully DPC, MR Examine patients more skillfully DPC, MR Define and prioritize patients’ medical problems DPC, MR, SM Improve surgical skill and judgment in the Operating Room DPC Generate and prioritize differential diagnoses DPC, MR Develop rational, evidence-based management strategies DPC, MR, EC
  2. 2. 2. Medical Knowledge Principle Educational Goals Learning Activities* Expand clinically applicable knowledge base of the basic and clinical sciences underlying the care of patients DPC, MR, EC Access and critically evaluate current medical information and scientific evidence relevant to patient care DPC, MR, EC 3. Interpersonal Skills and Communication Principle Educational Goals Learning Activities* Communicate effectively with patients and families DPC, MR, EC Communicate effectively with physician colleagues at all levels DPC, MR, EC, SM Communicate effectively with all non- physician members of the health care team to assure comprehensive care of patients DPC, MR, SM Present patient information concisely and clearly, verbally and in writing DPC, MR, EC, SM Teach colleagues effectively DPC, MR, EC 4. Professionalism Principle Educational Goals Learning Activities* Behave professionally towards patients, familes, colleagues, and all members of the health care team All 5. Practice-Based Learning and Improvement Principle Educational Goals Learning Activities* Identify and acknowledge gaps in personal knowledge and skills in the care of gynecological patients DPC, MR Develop and implement strategies for filling gaps in knowledge and skills DPC, EC 6. Systems-Based Practice Principle Educational Goals Learning Activities Understand and utilize the multidisciplinary resources necessary to care optimally for gynecologic oncology patients DPC, MR, SM Collaborate with other members of the health care team to assure comprehensive patient care DPC, MR,SM Use evidence-based, cost-conscious strategies in the care of gynecologic oncology patients DPC, MR, SM At the conclusion of the PGY 4 year, the resident should have developed competency in the gynecologic oncology goals and objectives for the third year as well as proficiency in the gynecologic oncology goals and objectives outlined for PGY 2 and PGY3 .
