EvaluationFellowship Evaluation

Faculty evaluate fellows twice a year in the University of New Mexico Division of Endocrinology. Each faculty member completes a written evaluation form that stays in the fellow’s cumulative file. The program director or associate program director discusses the written evaluation forms during a meeting with each fellow.

As fellows conduct procedures, faculty observe and document the experience in a chart. Fellows keep a record of procedures performed and review it at six-month evaluations.

Evaluation of Faculty

Each fellow anonymously fills out evaluation forms for faculty members annually. The program director reviews these evaluations with each faculty member and discusses strategies for improvement if needed.

Evaluation of Program

Staff and fellows evaluate the training program annually. When they identify a problem area, fellows explain their issues and meet with faculty to discuss solutions. Periodically, the division revises and expands the program to meet the changing needs of fellows and faculty.
