Supervising Faculty

Emory residents must be under faculty supervision as defined in their program specialty requirements by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and in the best interests in patient care.   The Program Director is responsible for ensuring that all faculty supervising residents meet the ACGME criteria for program faculty and have appropriate credentials.  Key program faculty must have faculty appointments at Emory University.   

Emory residency programs must submit program-specific supervision policies to the GMEC, with a focus on what levels of supervision are provided for the various learning activities at various levels of training.
