Residents take the PRITE as a PG-4 and the Child PRITE each year, and Mock Boards are held as an annual clinical skills examination. There are residents’ meetings with the chief resident as well as an annual departmental residents’ retreat. The Program Evaluation Committee has resident representatives and meets quarterly.
