The University at Buffalo Training Program Administrators meet as a group to network with their peers, share best practices, seek peer support 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.
To highlight the importance of professional development, the TPAC Council plans a TPA development day. It's a day away from the office and focuses on issues important to training program administrators in Buffalo.
Administrators should feel free to address any questions to the members of the Training Program Administrators' Committee Council (TPACC).

The Training Program Administrator Committee Council (TPACC) will collaborate with the GME Training Program Administrator Liaison to manage the scheduling, content and logistics of TPAC meetings and the annual TPA Development Day event. Collaborative management of this committee will assist TPAs in becoming GME leaders, an aspirational goal of the TPA milestones. The council will advocate for initiatives that will align with the professional development needs of TPAs; provide an enhanced opportunity for peer-to-peer education; support and consider national issues for educational discussions; and encourage presentation of UB GME TPA-driven projects at national conferences.
