The GME program team supports our trainees through the many steps of deciding on and completing their GME training.
The UPMC Medical Education Board of Directors and UPMC System Hospital Executive Leadership are committed to graduate medical education as our collective responsibility and mission to recruit, train and retain the best and most diverse physicians, pharmacists, and other clinicians to care for our patients.
We are committed to providing the necessary administrative, educational, financial, and human and clinical resources to provide residents with an optimal environment in which to advance their learning and to achieve their professional goals. We work to provide the best education possible in the current art and science of medicine; while developing leaders in patient care, research, and community partnerships. We direct that our patients receive unparalleled quality and the safest care. We endeavor to select and retain the most qualified applicants. Integral to our efforts in the continuing advancement of the profession of medicine is the mission of scholarship, research, evidence-based care and continual clinical innovation. We foster and require an ethical and inclusive atmosphere; one of collegiality and well-being among our faculty, learners, and academic leadership. UPMC ME ensures the highest level of professional leadership for its Graduate Medical Education Programs.
Pursuant to the above goals, the UPMC Board, and Executive Leadership, have directed that UPMC ME, through its Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC), has the sole system authority and responsibility for all UPMC Graduate Medical Education training across the UPMC system. This includes all ACGME accredited graduate medical education programs, Non-Standard Training Programs (NST), and all other programs under the purview of the GMEC. UPMC ME will provide leadership and guidance that includes regular internal quality assessments and compliance reviews, decisions related to the reallocation of system resources in Graduate Medical Education, and addressing concerns related to discrimination to improve all our programs.
The Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) is empowered to enforce actions on each program, to assure compliance with ACGME standards, as well as UPMC policies and professional practice directives for quality and integrity mandated by this body.
