Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC)

The Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) is responsible for establishing and implementing policies and procedures, overseeing program’s compliance with ACGME program guidelines, and reviewing all program changes. The GMEC reports to the Dean of the School of Medicine, to the Faculty Council of the School of Medicine, and at least annually to the Executive Medical Board (the organized medical staff) of each of the three major participating hospitals (Moffitt-Long/Mt. Zion Medical Centers, San Francisco General Hospital and the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center).

Voting membership on the committee includes the designated institutional official (Associate Dean Robert Baron, MD, MS), residents and clinical fellows nominated by their peers, representative program directors, and administrators. It may also include other members of the faculty or other members as determined.

The GMEC typically meets on the third Monday of each month at 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. at Parnassus.

Submissions for the GMEC meeting agenda should be sent to the GME Accreditation Manager by the first of each month. Communications should be addressed to the Designated Institutional Official (DIO) and/or the GMEC.
