Building Effective Programs Together

Building Effective Programs Together:

A Course for Program Directors and Advanced Coordinators

The ACGME is proud to announce a course for advanced coordinators and program directors that emphasizes team building and collaboration in furthering the goals of competency-based medical education in graduate medical education (GME) programs.

This two-and-a-half-day course will be held at the ACGME headquarters in Chicago and will be limited to 60 attendees. Attendees will work together in dyads: program coordinator and either program director or associate program director from the same institution. Program directors or associate program directors and their program coordinator partner must both be in attendance.

Course Overview
This course is designed—through experiential learning techniques, small-group sessions, and lectures—to assist program directors (or associate program directors) and experienced coordinators in developing self-awareness, understanding their individual styles, and enhancing open communication to utilize the dynamics of their personal strengths and weaknesses to build a strong and effective team. Days 2 and 3, mirroring the ACGME’s highly successful assessment course for faculty members, build on the understanding of team dynamics to optimize resident/fellow feedback, assessment, and evaluation in the program. By working in dyads, the combined strengths and weaknesses each individual brings to the team can blend these characteristics to optimize the program’s effectiveness.

This course will be held October 2-4, 2016.
