The Office of Graduate Medical Education
The Broward Health Office of Graduate Medical Education exists to provide the central administrative services to support all of our residency training programs, faculty, residents, and students. The Office of GME is responsible for accreditation support for the institution and for the training programs. This includes ensuring compliance with ACGME Institutional and Program requirements, AOA Institutional and Program requirements, CODA and ASHP Program requirements.
The GMEC is a subcommittee of the Medical Staff and maintains active oversight of graduate medical education by reviewing and approving education policy, monitoring the clinical learning environment, reviewing and approving all educational training sites, and reviewing program accreditation status.
The Educational Program
At Broward Health, we strive to provide a supportive, yet academically challenging educational environment. Our goal is to provide the clinical learning environment in which residents and fellows can develop the knowledge, skills attitudes, and values that will serve as their basis for competent and compassionate clinical practice, scholarly inquiry, and continued service to the community.
Residents are encouraged to develop a process for self-evaluation and reflection that will sustain a lifetime of responsible and committed practice of medicine. The educational program prepares residents to participate in their own education and to teach their patients, peers, and other learners throughout their careers. We are committed to ensuring that our graduates understand the scientific basis of medicine and apply that knowledge daily to their clinical practice. Resident physicians will be exposed to evidence-based practice and the latest in medical technology.
