Our Objectives

Eisenhower Medical Center strives to fully realize its commitment to Graduate Medical Education by providing oversight and support for all sponsored Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs. Consistent with the Institutional and GME Program Requirements of the ACGME, it is expected that each residency will appoint the most qualified applicants, recruit and retain outstanding academic attending physicians, and offer comprehensive, competency-based educational programs while maintaining a balance between training, service, and research, and while fostering the professional development and personal growth of each resident.

To achieve the above objectives, Eisenhower Medical Center will continue to:

  • Support a Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) that has policy and oversight responsibilities as required by Eisenhower policies and ACGME Institutional Requirements.
  • Fund a central administrative Office of Graduate Medical Education to support all GME Programs, GMEC and GMEC subcommittees, and medical student clerkships.
  • Offer educational resources (medical library, teaching space, equipment, information systems) and curricula common to all GME Programs.
  • Ensure that all residents and medical students have the opportunity to learn and provide supervised safe patient care.
  • Ensure that all residents are treated fairly and have ample opportunity to communicate any concerns.
  • Facilitate and formalize collaborations and affiliations with other teaching hospitals and community facilities and with the Keck School of Medicine at USC, Loma Linda University School of Medicine, and the University of California Riverside School of Medicine.
  • Provide hospital professional, informational, and support services that are adequate to meet the educational goals of each program. An integrated electronic health record assists with a heightened level of care for our inpatients and ambulatory patients.
  • Coordinate the fair implementation of personnel policies and procedures for all trainees.
  • Provide comfortable on-call rooms, food services, security, and other services beneficial to the well-being of all trainees.
  • Assure compliance with the ACGME duty hour requirements.
