The HMS Academy Interest Group on Feedback and Evaluation has the following goals and objectives: (1) highlight the formative and summative means of providing feedback to medical students, residents and fellows regarding their performance in didactic settings, including lectures, seminars, small group tutorials, and in their clinical performance in rotations.; (2) highlight the formative and summative means of providing faculty peer feedback in the teaching roles in lectures, seminars, small group tutorials and in clinical rotations; (3) define the ways in which feedback and evaluation may be delivered, received and elicited in didactic and clinical settings; (4) provide local and national evidence-based instruments that may be used as guidelines in the formulation of feedback and evaluation; (5) make the instruments for feedback and evaluation available to the HMS community on the Interest Groups’ webpage; (6) provide an annotated bibliography of the best research and review papers on feedback and evaluation to the HMS community; (7) develop local teaching modules at HMS teaching hospital and mini-symposia for the HMS community on the best practices of feedback and evaluation of students, residents, fellows and faculty; (8) Provide the HMS community with an online module for students, residents, fellows and faculty for understanding and fostering giving, receiving and eliciting feedback; (9) coordinate with other HMS Academy Interest Groups that have relevance to feedback and evaluation, such as the group on Critical Thinking; Residents as Teachers and Peer Observation; (10) Facilitate the incorporation of effective means of feedback and evaluation in the New Curriculum Reform at HMS.
