Policy

Missed deadlines will lead to the following responses:

1st miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline and a reminder about the various deadlines in residency; this will help you to find a list of those deadlines known as the ‘Residency Roadmap’ (https://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/departments/medicine/intmed/imrp/KEYDATES/Pages/Roadmap.aspx)

2nd miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline.  You will be offered the opportunity to speak to a Chief Medical Resident and/or your APD if you would like.

3rd miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline. We require that you meet with a Chief Medical Resident to discuss the residency requirements upon a 3rd missed deadline.

4th miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline. We require that you meet with your Associate Program Director to discuss the residency requirements upon a 4th missed deadline. All residents with 4 missed deadlines are brought to Clinical Competency Committee for review for ACGME Milestone PROF-2 (“Accepts responsibility and follows through on tasks.”).

5th miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline. We require that you meet with Dr. Connors for all 5th missed deadlines. All residents with 5 missed deadlines are brought to Clinical Competency Committee for review for ACGME Milestone PROF-2 (“Accepts responsibility and follows through on tasks.”). It will be at the discretion of Dr. Connors whether this 5th missed deadline leads to Focused Review or Probationary Status. (Please take note as this is important: if you are placed on Focused Review is not a part of your Permanent training file).

6th miss: You will receive an email noting the missed deadline. We require that you meet with your APD and Dr. Connors together, with an option to meet with leadership from the GME office. Clinical Competency Committee review and Focus Review can be assumed, Probation is possible at the discretion of the Program Director. Please note that Probation will be a part of your Permanent training file.
