The way a postgraduate medical training program is organized and the capacity of faculty members to function as tutors and to organize effective professional experiences are among the elements that affect the quality of training. An evaluation system designed to target these elements has been implemented within the framework of the Pediatric Residency Program of the University of Padua (Italy). The aim of this report is to describe some aspects of the experience gained in the first 3 years of implementation of the system (2013–2015). Data were collected using four validated questionnaires: the “Resident Assessment Questionnaire”, the “Tutor-Assessment Questionnaire”, the “Rotation-Assessment Questionnaire”, and the “Resident Affairs Committee-Assessment Questionnaire”. The response rate was 72% for the “Resident Assessment Questionnaires”; 78% for the “Tutor-/Rotation-Assessment Questionnaires” and 84% for the “Resident Affair Committee-Assessment Questionnaires”. The scores collected were validated by psychometric tests.
