The portfolio system is an interactive web-based professional development tool designed for use by resident physicians to record their learning and track their progress against defined learning objectives. It allows for feedback from physicians on the residents’ progress and will support the residents’ transition into private medical practice.
“We believe the best physicians are lifelong learners,” said Kathy Hudson, M.D., Radiology Residency Program Director. “Portfolio systems can help resident physicians track their progress in competency-based learning. They also can help develop curriculum that connects to desired educational outcomes for physicians and assist with assessing resident physician performance.”
Beta testing follows alpha testing conducted previously by the ACGME, which tested the portfolio system’s general functionality. The UT Radiology Residency Program was chosen among a national search for the beta testing phase, which will begin later in 2008. Specifically, the Radiology resident physicians will scrutinize the system by identifying specialty-specific needs.
