GMEC Subcommittees

Some voting members of the GMEC chair the advisory groups who provide support for GME related functions. Any GMEC responsibility that an advisory group acts upon is first reviewed and approved by the GMEC. Advisory groups are:

Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER): Determine and carry out logistical preparations for the CLER visit.  Prepare the response to the CLER report, define and carry out appropriate actions resultant from deficiencies identified in the CLER report. Chair: Dr. Jennifer Laudadio

Resident Organization: Composed of peer-elected residents/fellows solicited from each program annually.  The Council provides a forum for resident/fellow discussion and input into all matters pertaining to GMEC activities.  The Council works to assure effective communication among residents/fellows and provides a step in the process for addressing concerns in a confidential manner. Members of the Resident Council may also serve on one of the other GMEC advisory groups.   Non-peer-elected residents may be appointed to represent special groups (AAMC-ORR, AMA Resident Section).  Residents who serve on the Resident Council may serve on an additional advisory group if they so choose. 2019-20 Resident Council Co-Chairs: Abigail Richison and Nikhil Kamath

Working Groups

Work Hours: Oversee work hour monitoring for UAMS. Chair: Dr. Hank Farrar and Dr. Carol Thrush
