To establish a process by which the promotion of residents is delineated.
It is assumed that all categorical residents enter the residency with the intention, both by the program and by the resident, to complete that residency.
There is no pyramid nor competition for positions at the next level of training within any of the program in this institution.
It is understood that each resident who meets the criteria of a program for promotion as judged by the Program Director (with the counsel of the Education Advisory Committee of that program) will be offered a position at the next level of training. Residents who do not meet these criteria will be notified in a timely manner and may implement the process outlined in the Grievance Procedure Policy. Residents who do not meet the competency criteria for promotion or completion of training may be offered remedial training at the discretion of the Program Director/Education Advisory Committee.
