We are interested in getting to know you while you are training at our institution, so please stop by. Certainly call or come by our office if you have questions or need assistance.
GME Website and GME Policies
Be sure to spend some time looking through the resources on the GME website at . You will find a number of GME policies as well as other pertinent information on the website. You will be responsible for understanding and complying with the policies on our site.
While the GME Office will be your home base for employment issues, your program leadership including your Program Director, Chief Resident(s), and Program Coordinator will support your education. Programs are responsible for providing you with a rotation schedule to meet your educational needs (to prepare you for Board certification) including rotation goals and objectives, your duty schedules, and your faculty supervision. In addition to the institutional GME Policies, your program will have program-specific policies with which you must comply. You will be told of these policies, but be sure to ask your program leadership if you have questions.
Residents and Fellows provide essential leadership to the GME enterprise and the two institutions through the Resident’s Council. The Council meets monthly. Each program has a representative, and we would love for you to be involved. The Council advocates for the residents on issues such as benefits and work environment issues. They also provide critical input to the hospital for improving quality of patient care. The Chair of the Resident’s Council attends the Medical Staff Executive Committee as a representative of the residents and fellows.
