Stanford Anesthesia Senior Resident Teaching Scholar: Dr. Chris Miller will be the 2014-15 Senior Resident Teaching Scholar, after Dr. Tammy Wang who has done an outstanding job this academic year. Dr. Miller’s duties will include being the Co-Director of ImPRINT with full job description in Appendix 1.

Medical Student Symposium: The weekend of September 20th, 2014 will be the 3rd annual California Anesthesiology Medical Student Symposium at UC Irvine. Dr. Pedro Tanaka will represent Stanford and he is able to take three CA-2/3 residents, travel expenses for the one day program funded by the Department. The residents will be teaching an airway workshop to medical students as well as answering questions about our residency program. Please contact Dr. Tanaka if interested.

Milestones Update: Dr. Aileen Adriano has been working with the rotation directors on mapping out rotation evaluations according to the 25 milestones and Janine will be programming these evaluations into MedHub. Dr. Adriano will visit each resident class during a lecture period to introduce the milestones and inform residents of the changes to the evaluation process. She will also be attending division meetings to introduce faculty to the new process.
Under the new evaluation system the resident can demonstrate milestones at one of 5 levels:
Level 1: expected of a resident who has completed internship.
Level 2: expected of a resident prior to significant experience in the subspecialties of anesthesiology.
Level 3: expected of a resident after having experience in the subspecialties of anesthesiology.
Level 4: is ready to transition to independent practice. This level is designed as the graduation target.
Level 5: The resident has advanced beyond performance targets defined for residency, and is demonstrating “aspirational” goals which might describe the performance of someone who has been in practice for several years. It is expected that only a few exceptional residents will reach this level for selected milestones.

ABA Staged Exams: Dr. Kyle Harrison updated the group on the new ABA Staged Examination system. Beginning with the current CA-1 class, the new examination system will be in three parts. The Basic exam will be given the end of July following the completion of the CA-1 year. It will be offered every six months after that and a trainee must pass this exam to successfully proceed through the training program. Following the Basic exam and residency training, there is the Advanced written exam and then the two-part Applied Exam that includes the Objective Structured Clinical Examinations and an oral exam. The ABA is currently completing the building of a new facility in Raleigh North Carolina where all the Applied exams will take place.

SICU Update: The anesthesia resident on SICU will be acting as chief for some part of the rotation in the next few mths as a pilot and will get feedback from them on that experience.

CA2-CA3 Lecture Series Update: Dr. Alex Quick has helped improve the lecture series and will help identify junior resident representatives to work on a committee with Drs. Basarab and Harrison for next year. They will work together to select lecture topics and presenters for the class lecture series. Changes include that the faculty lecture will be first on the schedule at 4pm followed by the resident presentation such as journal club and PBLDs.

Chief Resident Update: The senior class lottery was held on Monday, April 14th and the chiefs will release the 2014-15 master rotation schedule shortly.

Libero Update: Dr. Tanaka has established a working group of residents (Lena Scotto, Phillip Wang, Sarah Clark, and Lindsay Borg) that will help to evaluate and suggest improvements for the Libero Program. Also this group will organize lectures in themes.

Rwanda Medical Mission: Dr. Natacha Telusca gave a presentation on her recent Global Health experience to Rwanda. Dr. Stephanie Jones also was a member of the team. It was a rewarding experience and encourage other residents to take advantage of this opportunity in the future.

The Annual Program Evaluation Meeting chaired by Dr. Kyle Harrison will be on Tuesday, May 13th in the Anesthesia Conference Room beginning at 5pm.

Next Education Committee Meeting: Thursday, May 8th, 2014 at 3:30pm
