Abstract

Rarely, interns or residents may be unable or unwilling to perform satisfactorily in a graduate medical education program. In such instances, the director of medical education or residency director (or both) must inform the trainee of his or her deficiency and provide appropriate counseling, generally with the opportunity for remediation. If dismissal becomes necessary, due process must be followed, and the institution must keep documentation that appropriate procedures were followed. These necessary procedures are outlined herein.
