On-Site Evaluators

Volunteer to Become a CPME Residency Program Evaluator

One of the most important components of the CPME residency approval process is the team on-site visit. The visit is a peer-review process that helps to enhance the quality of education by assessing a program’s compliance with CPME standards and requirements. CPME is committed to ensuring each evaluator possesses appropriate experience and skills essential to the evaluation process. CPME residency evaluators must be certified by one or both of the specialty boards recognized by the Joint Committee on the Recognition of Specialty Boards and must be either program directors or active faculty members of CPME-approved residency programs.

Prior to participating as a member of a team, evaluators complete a training program and are assigned to a team as trainees under the tutelage of the team chair and the specialty board representatives. The Council pays all expenses incurred during the site visit as well as a per diem for each travel and on-site visit day.
