Training Program Administrator Committee (TPAC)

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.

  • A representative from each program will be expected to attend.
  • Attendance at TPA meetings will be a measure that is recorded on the GME Dashboard and will be considered for GME awards.

Administrators should feel free to address any questions to the members of the Training Program Administrators' Council (TPACC).
