Graduate Medical Education Policies

The Graduate Medical Education (GME) committee has developed and approved a series of polices related to the education and well being of all house staff. These polices cover a broad range of issues from the requirements for resident medical licensure to what happens to the BIDMC programs in the event of a national or hospital wide disaster.

Although many policies are required by the ACGME, we believe that these polices do more than just fulfill requirements. Our polices have been carefully written to assist house staff and program leadership tackle complex issues that may come up during training. These polices can provide guidance to our graduate medical education community, allowing programs to provide a superior educational experience that respects the rights of the individual residents or fellows while also supporting their program leadership.

For questions surrounding these polices please contact:
