Recorded training sessions - 2017

In 2017, the GME office provided a series of quarterly training sessions for program coordinators, assistant coordinators, and any other interested program staff.  These sessions were designed to:

  • Orient new coordinators and refresh experienced coordinators on aspects of their role as they arise seasonally,
  • Share best practices, and
  • Ensure common information is received by all coordinators.

For 2018, a working group of coordinators is developing alternate approaches to providing this content.  Notes and replays of the 2017 sessions are available here:

RMS training

RMS is the common system used throughout the metro GME community to share information about residents and fellows.  It's vital that the information in RMS is complete, accurate, and kept up-to-date.  MMCGME offers regularly-scheduled in-person RMS trainings, and are also available for one-on-one or small group sessions at your request.  They can reserve learning space with computers or will travel to your location.  View upcoming MMCGME RMS Training Sessions or request a special session here.
