The Graduate Medical Education Committee has oversight authority and repsonsibility for all aspects of medical residency education. GMEC ensures that each graduate medical education program provides effective educational experiences for residents and fellows that lead to measurable achievement of educational outcomes using the ACGME competencies.
Voting membership includes the DIO, associate dean for Graduate Medical Education (chair), program directors (associate program directors are non-voting members except by program director proxy), the three House Senate Officers elected by the House Staff (president, vice president, secretary), vice president of quality and patient safety or designee, the executive director of operations and finance, and others as deemed by GMEC appointment.
GMEC oversees all GME activity, including communication between programs and ACGME residency review committees. GMEC also reviews reports from site visits and subsequent progress reports in order to ensure that problems are addressed and additional resources made available to respond to deficiencies.
This committee meets the fourth Thursday of every month.
Chair: Katherine Stephens, M.D.
