As described by the American College of Preventive Medicine, Preventive Medicine Specialists are licensed medical doctors (MD) or doctors of osteopathy (DO), with additional education in health topics including biostatistics, epidemiology, environmental and occupational health, planning and evaluation of health services, management of healthcare organizations, research into causes of disease and injury in population groups, and the practice of prevention in clinical medicine. They combine population-based public health skills with prevention-oriented clinical practice to promote the health of communities.
As adult learners, each resident is expected to take responsibility for their learning and seek out opportunities for learning during each rotation, with the faculty's guidance and direction.
It is an ACGME requirement that residents be evaluated on their rotation performance throughout their residency training. University GME guidelines are to have the evaluations completed and submitted within 2 weeks after the end of the rotation. Because Preventive Medicine rotations can extend over 4, 6 or more months, we also recommend an evaluation at the midpoint of the rotation.
The Preventive Medicine Residency program will continue to deliver evaluation forms via MedHub (from the email do-not-reply@MedHub.com) to site attending physicians for each rotation. But please feel free to select your evaluation form from the chart below, print and complete a hard copy of the evaluation form, and scan/email it back to Program Coordinator, Jeanne.Rozzo@cuanschutz.edu if you prefer. We value your time with our Residents and appreciate your feedback
