Physician Assessment - Phase II

Phase II of the assessment program is a minimum one-week clinical education program provided at the UCSD Medical Center or one of its satellite clinics.  It is a formative assessment of the participant's clinical skills, knowledge and judgment.

The results of the Phase I Assessment are used to help inform the scope and design of Phase II.  Each program will be individually tailored to the participant's specialty and Phase I findings to the extent possible.  As a result, Phase II programs will vary widely by specialty and from participant to participant.

The following list represents elements that are common to many Phase II programs (please note that this list is neither all-inclusive, nor are the items on the list necessarily common to all Phase II programs):

  • Clinical Observation
  • Departmental Conferences & Lectures
  • Evidence-Based Medicine Project
  • Further Evaluation

At the conclusion of Phase II, a multidisciplinary staff meeting is held to determine if the physician has completed the program satisfactorily or if more evaluation, education, or remediation is necessary.

The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 40 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.  Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
