Program Ground Rules

Faculty and residents need to be on the same page when it comes to expectations around EPAs and Elentra. Program Directors, department or division CBME Leads, and Program Administrators need to communicate with their faculty and residents about the following and whether there is flexibility or if it differs by rotation:

  • The number of EPAs expected to be requested per day, week, or block
  • The number of EPAs expected to be completed by an assessor per day, week, or block
