  • Editor’s Note

    Dear readers,
    I’d like to say thanks to all you out there that have completed our customer survey. For those of you who haven’t, there’s still time to participate. Early results show that NAS and CLER visits are among your biggest concerns for 2015. If this is the case at your organization, I’d like to remind you that HCPro offers on-site Residency Program Coordinator Boot Camps to help you tackle these concerns head-on. 
    The boot camps are intensive two-day courses designed to train program coordinators on how to prepare for the NAS and CLER visits, other ACGME requirements, best practices for survey readiness, and overall program support and management.
    If you are interested in holding a boot camp at your organization, please call 800-650-6787 or email for more information.
    Thanks for reading!
