In the CBD model of resident training, the Department of Psychiatry has implemented a new role - the Coach! Each learner in the CBD model is matched with a faculty coach. The learner and faculty coach are encouraged to meet approximately every two months to review the learner's progress. The role of the coach is to:
- Facilitate a learner's improvement in their clinical performance.
- Typically does not evaluate the learner.
- Can support the learner around broader issues such as career planning and wellness - though this is not the primary responsibility.
