The Residency Program Solutions (RPS) Criteria for Excellence is an industry-leading publication outlining best practices and policies in residency education. In its 11th edition, the Criteria is a set of aspirational guidelines used in RPS consultations representing the collective wisdom of consultants--each with decades of experience. Ideas and practices, peer level experiences as residency educators, and ongoing assessments of the GME learning environment form the basis for the Criteria for Excellence. It is updated frequently to adapt to the changing landscape of family medicine.
The 11th Edition includes section updates, structure re-organization and a condensed Self-Assessment Tool to help initiate conversations with key stakeholders, stimulate questions, and become part of a process of continuous improvement for program leaders.
