The Office of Graduate Medical Information
The Office of Graduate Medical Education coordinates all institutional medical education activities. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the accrediting body for all graduate medical education programs, mandates institutional responsibility and required documentation for all GME programs. The ACGME reviews all institutions with two or more residency programs through the institutional review document and periodic site visits (approximately every 3 years).
There must be a Designated Institutional Official (DIO) who has the authority and responsibility for the oversight and administration of the Sponsoring Institution’s ACGME accredited programs and who is responsible for assuring compliance with ACGME institutional requirements.
Functions of the Office
Institutions must have a centralized office responsible for ensuring compliance with all institutional requirements established by the ACGME to support these residency programs. The institution is responsible for 3 core residency training programs, 6 fellowship training programs, a CPME and 2 ADA residency training programs.
The Office of Graduate Medical Education relies on its relationship with all departments within the institution. It exists in part to meet the ACGME requirements for centralization and oversight and as an institutional graduate medical education resource. The Office also provides assistance and counseling to all members of the graduate staff whenever needed. Its major functions include accreditation:
- Institutional Review Committee
- Residency Review & Site Visit Preparation
- Institutional Affiliation/Rotation Agreement
