Today, August 18, 2023, we’re recognizing GME Professionals Day!
This day was started by the Association for Hospital Medical Education in 2021 to recognize the administrative professionals who are responsible for running the daily operations of GME programs around the country.
At Cooper, Graduate Medical Education includes 22 residency and 31 fellowship training programs. This key group of Cooper team members are the liaisons connecting our 71 program leaders with their 466 trainees, maintaining our accreditation standards and regulatory compliance requirements, managing our training sites and curriculum, and so much more.
We are incredibly thankful to our GME Professionals for all they do to support our programs at Cooper. Without them we would not have the great programs that we do. We look forward to our larger celebration, planned for Friday, September 22.
