The Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) is charged with overseeing the quality of residency education and the resident work environment in UB-sponsored programs. Membership includes hospital, university and resident leaders. Its work is accomplished through establishing and implementing policies and procedures and communicating with residency program directors and the dean.
Members of the Program Directors Advisory Committee (PDAC) review and comment on proposed GME policies and procedures, share best practices for teaching, evaluating and assessing resident competence and organize faculty-development training.
The QIPS Committee is charged with ensuring residents and faculty members understand, participate in, and feel responsible for the quality of patient care delivered in clinical settings.
The University at Buffalo Training Program Administrators meet several times a year to gather as a group to network with their peers, share best practices and learn about new GME policies and procedures. These meetings focus on ACGME accreditation requirements and reviewing the procedures required by the GME office through discussion and in-depth training.
