During HCPro’s recent webcast, Survival Skills for Residency Coordinators and Administrators, presenter Diana Davila, C-TAGME, program coordinator for the University of Texas Southwestern Family Medicine Residency Program in Dallas, answered a number of audience questions, including what is the most important role of coordinators. The following is her response:

Q: Of all the different hats that coordinators wear, which is the most important?

Davila: I think the most important is being the liaison between the program director, faculty, and the residents. A program coordinator sometimes sees things before it becomes a problem, before residents get themselves into trouble, or before you have to go to the program director and it becomes an official write-up in the file. Sometimes a program coordinator will know things that are going on so that they can explain it to the director and provide insight.
