GME Program Coordinator
Southeast Health is excited to announce expansion plans of our residency programs! Our commitment to excellence in medical education begins with a solid foundation of program leadership. Therefore, we are seeking highly motivated Coordinators to assist with the establishment new GME programs from inception to implementation.
The Coordinator is
the lead administrative person to provide direction, leadership, and day-to-day management of the graduate medical education program and serve as an important liaison with learners, faculty, other staff members, ACGME, and other governing entities. The Coordinator is a member of the program leadership team and is critical to the success of the program. As such, the Coordinator must possess skills in leadership and personnel management. Coordinators are expected to develop unique knowledge of ACGME and program requirements, policies, and procedures. Coordinators assist the program director in accreditation efforts, educational programming, and support of residents.
The Coordinator must demonstrate initiative, resourcefulness, and problem-solving skills in applying a detailed knowledge of responsibilities, functions, and underlying management structure of the department and of the larger institution in organizing and independently prioritizing work, establishing/improving procedures and systems, and ensuring orderly and timely work flow.
As support for medical education programs is a team effort, the Graduate Medical Education office and the Program Director jointly determine selection of the Coordinator, create priorities and goals, and evaluate the Coordinator. The Coordinator is encouraged to participate in continued professional development activities.
