Policy on Non-ACGME GME Training Programs
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.
