The Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) The GME Team Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) Each program is required to operate a Clinical Competence Committee (CCC), a group comprised of 3 or more members of the active teaching faculty conducts regularly scheduled meetings to review the progress of every resident in the program meetings must be at least quarterly (many programs will need to be at shorter intervals) Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) advisory to the program director considers all written rotational and other evaluations, and discusses any non-congruence between written evaluations and their experiences with each resident Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) The provision of frank feedback by the CCC to the program director is an important process for determining whether the resident’s performance is accurately revealed in the rotational evaluations. The CCC discussion and recommendations are communicated to the program director for feedback to the resident, and are considered equal in weight to the written evaluations. Clinical Competency Committee (CCC) The CCC may maintain written minutes, and if so, must employ the CCC Minutes template, which lists the names of all residents considered and all CCC members in attendance. As a peer review process, documents are subject to peer review protection. CCC Minutes CCC Minutes CCC Minutes The CCC and Milestones Residents will undergo a structured evaluation against milestones (in most specialties this will be done semiannually). The CCCs will review and use assessment data, including faculty member assessments of residents on rotations, self evaluations, peer evaluations, and evaluations by nurses and other staff members. Each program may continue to use its current resident assessment tools, and phase in tools developed specifically for the milestones when these become available. Programs in Phase I specialties will submit their initial milestone data in December 2013 and June 2014.
