Abstract

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Practice-Based Learning and Improvement competency incorporates lifelong learning techniques and self-reflection. Resident portfolios have received attention as a useful method for addressing this competency. A recent patient encounter provided an experienced clinical educator with the opportunity to develop a portfolio entry that was distributed to all of the residents and faculty in an emergency medicine residency. This report may assist educators in explaining how one could approach the development of the portfolio as a tool for self-assessment. A candid discussion by a senior faculty member about issues that contributed to medical error has been underreported in the medical literature.
