ABIM's Academic Affairs department is dedicated to working closely with the graduate medical education community to enhance residency and fellowship training through faculty development, education and research.
We strive to support the academic community by encouraging program directors to critically assess and evaluate trainee competence. This assessment helps to ensure that trainees have acquired the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to advance in their careers by:
- Establishing a relationship between the trainee and the faculty who train them
- Providing education and tools to help faculty improve their assessment of trainees
- Communicating the value of Certification and Maintenance of Certification to trainees early in their medical careers
- Supporting academic leaders in their efforts to engage trainees in lifelong professional development
Academic Affairs can provide resources for training program assessment tools, faculty development initiatives, certification policies and FasTrack® evaluations.
