Residency Oversight/Clinical Competency Committee

Our program director Dr. Johna, an elected Member of the Board of Directors, Southern California Permanente Medical Group, is advised by the Residency Oversight Committee, which

meets monthly. Chief Residents are also part of the committee.

 

The Residency Oversight Committee (or ROC) reviews items pertinent to the residents’ education.  They also review research involvement and duty hour violations. In  addition, they interview candidates for intern positions and any vacancies that  may occur. Items of concern and interest are brought to this committee for counsel and action.

 

The ROC also functions as the ACGME-mandated Clinical Competency Committee (CCC).  They evaluate each resident a minimum of  twice yearly and provide their input to the Program Director for decisions regarding promotion and retention.
