    Residency Learning System (RLS)

    RESIDENCY LEARNING SYSTEM (RLS)

    The PGY1 and PGY2 residency standards require that "...the resident's program be designed, conducted, and evaluated using a systems-based approach. Such an approach requires that there be a direct correlation among the expectations of resident performance, the type of instruction provided, and the evaluation of resident performance." The Residency Learning System (RLS) was created to help programs use a systematic approach to residency training.

    The RLS consists of multiple tools to help programs design and deliver training. Tools are categorized by the steps of the RLS process (Steps 1-9), with additional tools after Step 9.
