The Association of Program Directors in Surgery was founded in 1977 to provide a forum for the exchange of information and for discussion on a wide range of subjects related to post-graduate surgical education.
What is EQIP?
EQIP permits surgical residency program to use selected data elements to track predictive value for success of individual residents in the ABS, CE and QE exams.
EQIP allows use of objective factors relating to ABS Exam performance and subsequent successful performance of former residents during the early years of practice to identify components of a successful residency training program
Long-term goals include using patient outcomes data in surgery linked to resident training to demonstrate the actual, data-supported value of surgery residency training programs.
