Supervision and Evaluation
Responsibility will be given gradually as the fellow exhibits clinical and technical skills as well as judgment commensurate with such responsibility.
In all cases, attending (faculty) radiologist supervision is present. Initially, the fellow will function as the primary assistant to the faculty during a procedure.
Once the skills are mastered, the trainee will transition to become the primary operator under direct supervision of the faculty who will function as the primary assistant.
More complex cases will require greater exposure to these procedures prior to transitioning the trainee to the primary operator position. In all cases, the trainee will be directly supervised and/or assisted by the faculty radiologist in attendance.
Evaluation of the fellow will be performed quarterly by faculty members by means of a standardized evaluation form. Fellows will meet quarterly with the Program Director to review a composite of faculty evaluations and to discuss their progress to date.
At the end of the training program, the fellow will have the opportunity to evaluate the faculty as well as the overall effectiveness of the program in achieving its stated goals and objectives.
