GME Faculty Development Sessions

Ongoing faculty development is a core component of the ACGME’s Common Program Requirements.  To help address institutional and program needs in this vital area, GME sponsors a monthly Faculty Development session.  The series is coordinated by the GMEC Training & Development Subcommittee.  These hour-long presentations are designed to provide program directors, core faculty, program coordinators, and staff with ongoing development in their roles as educators and leaders in GME.  The series has been incredibly well received by all attendees!   If you would like further information, or potentially are interested in providing a talk, please contact Sylvia Bush, GME Program Manager, at
