As residents progress through their training toward independent practice, entrustment scales can be used to assess resident performance. The STFM CBME task force recommends the following entrustment scale:
Participated only as an observer or required faculty to do.
Required direct supervision with significant faculty assistance.
Required indirect supervision with minimal faculty assistance.
Completed independently, without need for assistance.
Demonstrated the ability to role model or teach others.
The STFM CBME Task Force is working with a technology vendor to integrate standardized, direct observation assessments into a commonly used mobile app. More information will be available by spring 2024.
