Resident and Fellows Council
Through the continued efforts by the Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) to enhance the educational experience at UCSF, the Resident and Fellow's Council was born. With their first meeting in 1999, the Resident and Fellow's Council (formerly the Medical Training Staff Committee) was to represent the more than 1,300 UCSF Resident and Clinical Fellows (ACGME or non-ACGME) in academic and administrative forums.
Charged in 2004 with a renewed emphasis on seeking new opportunities in improving quality of life and education issues impacting trainee work environment(s), the Resident and Fellow's Council undertook the challenge of developing and advocating alternative guidelines that will ultimately increase educational value at UCSF.
Under the guidance of Kathy Julian, M.D., Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education, the Resident and Fellow's Council encourages and welcomes new members to take part and contribute in shaping the policies governing physician and patient life and to be active in improving the quality and value for their patients and peers. Through the development and implementation of the Patient Care Fund, the Resident & Fellow's Council is at the forefront of the movement toward improving the quality of care for patients at the UCSF Medical Center.
