It is the policy of GMEC at Emory University School of Medicine to assure that appropriate and fair processes govern the allocation of resources to GME programs in which there are similarities or overlaps of educational missions (ex. Critical Care Medicine, Sports Medicine and Pain Medicine).
The DIO and GMEC will monitor and assure compliance with the allocation of resources by gaining information during mid-cycle internal reviews, communicating with each program regarding ACGME requirements and mentoring Program Directors.
In addition to the current policy starting new programs, the GMEC will give special consideration to existing programs when reviewing requests for a new program that potentially could compete for limited clinical or other educational resources.
If programs report difficulties in the distribution of resources committed to similar or competing training, the DIO will meet with program leaders to assess the distribution and to report these findings to the GMEC, which will recommend corrective action.
