Graduate Medical Education Institution Manual


Welcome to the University of Minnesota GME Institution Manual.

This manual is designed to provide residents/fellows (herein referred to as trainees), program directors, program coordinators, and education managers the most up-to-date information on ACGME institutional policy and procedures, leave policies and procedures, and administrative policies and procedures. 

Any time a policy or procedure is created or significantly updated, the GME office will send an email notice.

The Institution Manual is an umbrella policy manual.  Each program's policy manual must reference the Institution Manual and contain policies and procedures specific to the program.  Some programs may have policies that are more rigid than the Institution Manual, in which case the program policy would be followed.  Should a policy in a Program Manual conflict with the Institution Manual, the Institution Manual takes precedence.
