Program Committees (All)

Together, the four Program Committees (outlined below) are responsible for setting goals, objectives, and policies pertaining to the General Surgery Residency Program. The committees consist of program leadership, faculty members, and residents (where appropriate), providing an open channel of communication between residents, program directors and faculty members.

Clinical Competency Committee (CCC)

The CCC is responsible for conducting performance evaluations for every clinical resident of the General Surgery Residency Training Program at least twice yearly. The committee makes recommendations for ACGME Milestones assessments for each resident discussed, as well as recommendations for promotion, performance improvement, or corrective action to the program director. The decision for remediation or non-renewal of the contract of any resident will be the decision of the program director, with strong consideration of the input of the CCC.

The CCC meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 5:00-6:30pm and is chaired by Lan Vu, M.D., Associate Program Director for Assessment.
