Validity of ophthalmology surgical competency assessment rubric for strabismus surgery in resident training.
UNLABELLED: The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires US residency programs to assess ophthalmology residents for competency in 6 core areas. Ophthalmic surgical skills are currently part of the ACGME "Patient Care" competency, although some have advocated for a seventh competency, "Surgical Skills." The Ophthalmology Surgical Competency Assessment Rubric for Strabismus Surgery in Resident Training (
OSCAR: Strabismus) tool was designed to aid in the assessment of surgical skills using procedure specific behavioral anchors. The present study evaluated inter-rater agreement of the
OSCAR: Strabismus tool in the assessment of resident performance.
OSCAR: Strabismus evaluations of resident surgical strabismus cases were performed by a multinational group of faculty strabismus surgeons. Cronbach α statistical analysis of the completed evaluations revealed high inter-rater agreement, indicating the
OSCAR: Strabismus is a reliable tool to facilitate assessment of resident strabismus surgical skills.
