Remediation & Probation Resources

Remediations and probations are typically very challenging for Program Directors and Administrators alike.  Stakes are high, timelines are short, and trainees are vulnerable.  The Education Advisory Committee is a standing committee of engaged educators who have expertise in this area. Program Directors are encouraged to reach out to the chair or a member for advice as soon as they realize that they have a resident who is struggling. 


PA Training and Professional Development
