  • Support and assist the PD in faculty development activities and lead quarterly sessions each academic year.
  • Support and assist the PD in the preparation and submission of information required and requested by the ACGME, including annual surveys, application forms, and annual program updates to the ADS.
  • Support and assist the PD to ensure compliance with grievance and due process procedures as set forth in the Institutional Requirements and SMMH GME policies; at the request of the PD the APD may serve as the first level of review of a resident's clinical performance or behavioral concern.
  • Support and assist the PD in implementation of policies and procedures consistent with the institutional and program requirements for resident duty hours and the work environment, including moonlighting.
  • Be knowledgeable of and in compliance with ACGME and SMMH and Trinity Health policies and procedures.

Program Mentorship and Scholarship:

  • Mentor the PG1 and/or PGY2 resident class representatives or other residents as designated by the PD.
  • Assist in the selection and mentoring of the PGY4 Co-Chief Residents and PGY3 Associate Chief Resident.
  • Participate in resident scholarship with a goal of two scholarly products per year, e.g., posters, abstracts, papers, or presentations.
  • Write letters of recommendation for residents.
  • Submit workshop proposals, paper presentations, participate as a panelist/discussant at one organization at least every other year.
  • Serve on national committees or task forces as able.

Position Requirements:
