Managing an underperforming physician is a not so uncommon challenge faced by medical educators and academic administrators.

Yet, program directors are more likely to keep a “problem” resident in a program and allow them to move on to the next step in training than they are to dismiss a resident whose performance problems were not successfully addressed.

Why? Supervising physicians are often reluctant to give corrective feedback, they lack skills to make the right diagnosis for the cause(s) of difficulty, and they’re uncertain about the effectiveness of remediation.

Learning Objectives

This interactive, information-packed webinar explores how your organization can develop a legally defensible system for dealing with “problem” residents, along with strategies to dramatically improve the remediation process.

  1. Identify, evaluate and investigate the problems a resident is having
  2. Craft a remediation plan that is both educational, and legally defendable, and
