Applicants to the General Surgery Qualifying Exam (GSQE) are required to obtain during residency at least six operative performance assessments and six clinical performance assessments, conducted by their program director or other faculty members.
When signing an individual’s GSQE application, the program director will be asked to attest that these 12 assessments have been completed. However, the applicant bears ultimate responsibility for ensuring these assessments are performed while in residency. The completed assessment forms will not be collected by the ABS.
Programs that use New Innovations residency management software can have electronic versions of the Southern Illinois University (SIU) forms exported directly to their system at no cost. To use this service, contact Melissa Smock, and include your New Innovations institution ID with your request.
