Resident Evaluation Form:

Please comment on your experience working with the resident physician.

Good times have never passed as quickly as the three months, ten days and twelve hours
I have spent under Dr. ***’s service. From the start of the rotation on *** at ***, I was
very quickly introduced to Dr. ***’s sheer professionalism, patience and respect. Dr. ***
exemplifies what is essential to the medical student’s learning experience under trying times.
My biceps bulge from hours of daily retracting, and I feel more confident in my clinical skills,
especially with ***’s willingness to coach me on my mistakes, no matter how pressed for time or
how late in the day. Dr. ***’s kindness and leadership even extended beyond the hospital wards.
On a hectic shift, Dr. *** entrusted me with the task of buying donuts for the entire unit!
Never have I seen a resident go so far out of his/her way to ensure I used my time wisely, and
of the eighty mandatory evals I’ve done on this rotation, this will truly be my most memorable.
Read the first letter of each line on this evaluation, and you will have my utmost gratitude.

Sincerely,

***, MS-III
