Goals and Objectives for Rotations
Members: Tracy Johnson, MD (Chair); Martin Tamler, MD; Samuel Bierner, MD; Andy Sherman, MD
January 2008, the AAP formed a Subcommittee comprised of Residency
Program Directors to meet the ACGME mandate that rotations have
competency based and level specific rotation objectives. During the
first phase we solicited and received samples of goals and objectives
from multiple PMR training programs. Our second phase involved
organizing the data by rotations and creating standardized lists of
objectives organized according to the ACGME competencies. All the
objectives are organized by topic heading and are published to the AAP
website for other Program Directors to use when designing their own
rotations. Thank you to all the committee members who worked so hard
during this process and to all the programs that shared their rotation
objectives. Click on the subject and you will be taken to the
