Evaluation and Graduation
Core standards for resident performance have been established by ASHP to provide clear expectations. The PharmAcademic evaluation system is used to ensure that residents receive ongoing feedback that facilitates the development of their skills throughout the year. This feedback utilizes consistent assessment criteria and provides a mechanism for improving skills.
In addition to required learning experience evaluations, residents have one-on-one quarterly evaluations with their respective residency program director to document achievements, progress towards graduation requirements and tailoring of the program to meet their needs. Residents also are asked to evaluate each of their preceptors as well as each learning experience to help improve the experience for future residents.
Upon successful completion of the residency, graduates receive a certificate of completion from Mayo Clinic and the Department of Pharmacy, Mayo Clinic.
