The graduate medical education committee (GMEC) is responsible for overseeing the quality of graduate medical education and the learning and working environment for ACGME-accredited programs. While there are required components to oversight, GMECs have been allowed the flexibility to innovate an oversight structure that is appropriate for their individual programs and institution. This leaves some GMECs struggling to come up with a solid oversight process.

Beyond ACGME Compliance: Successful Development, Oversight, and Enhancement of Residency Programs will provide you with essential tools and processes to create a robust residency program oversight system for your institution that satisfies ACGME Institutional, Common, and Specialty Program Requirements under the Next Accreditation System (NAS) and which can be tailored to the unique characteristics of your educational environment.

Authors Jennifer L. Peel, PhD, and Robert J. Nolan, MD, are responsible for the design and implementation of program oversight in the NAS for 54 programs of various size and specialty at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. They have developed an oversight and review process that can be replicated at institutions of all types and sizes.

After reading this book, you’ll know how to:
•    Develop a timeline for new program reviews
•    Conduct a mock site visit before the scheduled 10-year site visit
