The authors have developed a resident evaluation system that minimizes inefficiencies and achieves the aims of evaluation. Individual resident performance is evaluated on each monthly rotation by those who have had significant contact with him as determined by the resident. Residents are rated as “below,” “adequate,” or “above” for these performance categories: (1) overall performance, (2) basic knowledge, (3) organizational skills, (4) communication skills, (5) interpersonal relationships, and (6) other areas and comments. The results are shared with the resident in a feedback session and recommendations made. These evaluations are summarized and discussed with the resident by the program director at the end of each year. This system has proved to be an efficient use of attending radiologist's and program director's time. The format has been accepted readily by all participants. The system has been helpful in identifying problem areas in resident performance and in curriculum and has resulted in prompt corrective action
