GME Internal Review

Preface

See GME Policies for full information on the GME Internal Review purpose, goals and policy.

Purpose

The Internal Review Committees are a subcommittee of the GMEC. They are required to review individual programs at the mid-point of their accreditation cycle.

Goals

To identify issues and concerns of the program, to insure a five year accreditation cycle.

Assignments

The Internal Review is composed of: Program Director of another program, a clinical faculty member, a basic science faculty member, a resident (usually the Chief of the Chair’s program), and ex officio, Director, Graduate Medical Education.

Procedures for Appointment

Any interested faculty can self-identify to the Director of GME, or Dean, School of Medicine, of his/her interest in serving on this committee. Program directors are assigned separately. The attempt is that they not be given a Committee Chair position more than once every three to five years.

Membership and Term

The term is generally for three years. During that time, faculty will be selected for an individual committee. Each committee lasts approximately 30 days and the time commitment is between 10-15 hours. Usually a faculty member will not be selected for more than two committees during the three years. There are usually 10-15 committees per year.
