Welcome to the Neonatal Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program @ McMaster University. This is your Coaching Portfolio! It will be a great asset for your career path in Neonatology. This portfolio website is owned by you forever. It is an efficient and effective strategy to objectively demonstrate the accomplishment of program objectives using learners’ perceptions of their academic experiences. A coaching portfolio is a comprehensive record of your progression and development throughout the training program. It provides an avenue for the thoughtful reflections, active monitoring and subsequent realignment of your program, encompassing all learning domains. It is a powerful tool, formulated after the CanMEDS roles framework, which will shape your learning experience and optimize the resources available to you during the training.

The coaching portfolio will include patient encounters and procedure logs, formative and summative written and oral evaluations, and rotation-specific evaluations. Continuing medical education, a current CV and research endeavours will also be recorded in this portfolio. Personal reflection will be the guiding force in shaping personal objectives during each rotation. 

coaching portfolio will be reviewed with your mentor, Evaluation committee chair, Research Chair and your Program Director regularly at each block as well as during the personal monthly meetings and will be formally evaluated at three month intervals.

Enjoy the journey.

With best regards,
Dr. Muzafar Gani Abdul Wahab
