Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME)

Resident Instagram takeover @kumc_gme weekly now through December

Graduate Medical Education (GME) prepares physicians for practice in a medical specialty through residency and fellowship educational programs.

The single most important responsibility of the GME is to provide residents and fellows in programs, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), with organized educational support, guidance, and supervision for professional and personal growth while also providing appropriate patient care.

GME focuses on the accreditation of residency and fellowship programs and provides oversight for each training program through six competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Interpersonal Communication, Practice Based Learning, Systems Based Practice and Professionalism. The GME process is intended to prepare physicians for independent practice of medicine, without direct supervision as well as assisting in the commitment to the lifelong learning process that is critical for maintaining professional growth and competency.
