Graduate medical education training programs accredited or approved by the ACGME
or ABMS fall within the jurisdiction of the GMEC, which provides oversight to
ensure compliance with all institutional and ACGME requirements. These include
but are not limited to educational concerns and activities, and policies on duty
hours, supervision, evaluation, due process, and resident work environment.
Non-ACGME accredited or ABMS approved medical education training programs are the
responsibility of the sponsoring academic department and do not fall under the
jurisdiction of the GMEC. For these career development activities, it is the
responsibility of the sponsoring department to ensure compliance with all relevant
university, medical center, and medical staff policies. These individuals may not
be appointed in the Post Graduate Year series.
