Family medicine residency earns top scores

Rocky Vista, HealthONE collaborate to offer program at Sky Ridge

Posted

A residency program offered at Sky Ridge Medical Center has received top scores on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s annual survey.

The family medicine residency program is one of several collaborations between HealthONE and Rocky Vista University’s Center for Medical Education Excellence. Its focus is on developing weekly evidence-based didactic sessions on medical topics, procedural and practice skills, journal clubs and physician wellness.

Each resident has a mentor to support his or her progress and assist in scholarly activity, and faculty are trained and certified in musculoskeletal and obstetrical ultrasound. Additional tracks, such as sports medicine and hospitalist, help tailor the residency experience to each graduate’s interests.

“We are delighted to have the highest score and will continue to work to improve our program in every way possible,” Kathryn Vidlock, MD, program director of the family medicine residency program, said in a news release. “We are extremely thankful to have support from both RVU and HCA.”

The survey, completed each year by residents and fellows, is part of Hospital Corporation of America Healthcare’s evaluation of its 24 family residency programs nationwide. Every year from January through April, the family medicine residencies are surveyed to ensure compliance with guidelines for clinical experience and education, faculty evaluation, educational content, work environment, patient safety and teamwork. Reports are generated that aggregate the survey data to provide an anonymous comparison.

The Center for Medical Education Excellence provides academic support and oversight to the family medicine residency program and ensure the highest quality of training for residents, many of whom are graduates from Rocky Vista’s college of osteopathic medicine.
