The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is committed to assuring quality graduate medical education and is the accredited sponsor for all of the residency programs in the group of affiliated hospitals comprising: Jacobi Medical Center; Montefiore Medical Center Moses Division and Montefiore Medical Center Weiler Division. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine assures, with respect to the residency programs operating in these hospitals, that both the Institutional and the Program Requirements for Residency Education are satisfied.
To accomplish the required oversight, the College created the position of Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education and established the Office of Graduate Medical Education, thereby providing centralized administrative support for GME. A Committee on Graduate Medical Education (COGME), with representation consisting of program directors, administrators, and residents from all three hospitals, fulfills the following responsibilities:
- To conduct regularly scheduled mid-cycle internal reviews of residency training programs.
- To consider reports of internal and RRC reviews.
- To recommend and ensure implementation of remedial actions as required.
- To assure appropriate institutional agreements.
- To establish and monitor guidelines for:
- Resident eligibility and selection;
- Resident participation in educational activities;
- Resident support, benefits and conditions of employment;
- Resident supervision, duty hours and workenvironment.
- To review proposed changes in residency programs and assure the educational appropriateness of such plans.
- To assure that all sponsored programs are in compliance with their own discipline specific requirements for accreditation.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine works in collaboration with its clinical affiliates to meet these responsibilities.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University works in collaboration with its clinical affiliates to meet ACGME-mandated responsibilities including assuring that all clinical affiliates provide necessary educational, financial, and human resources to support GME, as well as a variety of other mandates pertaining to Graduate Medical Education. These include, but are not limited to: regulations promulgated by the New York State Department of Health pertaining to resident duty hours and supervision; federal regulations pertaining to resident supervision, patient privacy, and occupational health and safety; and local contractual obligations concerning resident discipline and due process. In addition, the College and its affiliates share an interest in assuring effective communications and access to educational resources to support Graduate Medical Education.
