HCPro's Residency Program Coordinator Boot Camp® is an intensive two-day course that will train both osteopathic and allopathic program coordinators on ACGME requirements, best practices for survey readiness, maintaining accreditation, the Clinical Learning Environment Review, and overall program support and management. 

Using a combination of lecture, class interaction, and exercises, the Residency Program Coordinator Boot Camp gives coordinators the skills necessary to: 

  • Interpret ACGME standards and support compliance efforts 
  • Support the program director in meeting the ACGME standards

Here’s what you can expect during the Residency Program Coordinator Boot Camp

  • Unique focus: The Residency Program Coordinator Boot Camp goes beyond teaching the ACGME requirements. All course materials are custom-developed specifically for this intensive learning format. 
  • Hands-on learning: Attendees participate in interactive group activities and are encouraged to network with other attendees and share best practices from their institutions. 
  • Small class size: We maintain a low student-teacher ratio to facilitate discussions between students and the teacher. This facilitates course modules with hands-on exercises that allow practice of key concepts. 
  • Live instruction by top-notch educators: Brooke Moore, MBA, C-TAGME, has significant experience educating coordinators. She brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to this course.
  • Student-driven: At the conclusion of the course, we ask all participants to complete an evaluation, which we carefully review for feedback and course enhancement.
