The Residency Program Coordinator’s Handbook, Fourth Edition

Ruth Nawotniak, C-TAGME

Residency program coordinators shoulder the broad responsibility of not only ensuring their program meets accreditation requirements but also making sure residents, faculty, and program directors have all of the resources they need. But coordinators themselves need a resource they can rely on, too: a reference that covers the wide-ranging tasks that come up in their day-to-day duties.

Now updated to reflect the latest ACGME Common Program Requirements, The Residency Coordinator’s Handbook, Fourth Edition offers residency program and fellowship coordinators the education and field-tested solutions they need to ensure a successful and efficiently run residency/fellowship program. With contributors from an array of backgrounds, this book offers a global, multispecialty view of coordinator duties. New and veteran coordinators will benefit from the guidance, sample policies, and program tools they can implement immediately.

This product will help residency program coordinators:

  • Manage a training program that exceeds ACGME requirements
  • Define and grow the role of the program coordinator
  • Understand GME and related terminology
  • Manage the recruitment, orientation, and credentialing processes
  • Create a work environment that supports coordinators, faculty, and resident well-being
  • Develop a stronger relationship with program directors
  • Identify the key components and structure of program accreditation

This latest update of the Coordinator’s Handbook covers the new ACGME Common Program Requirements and includes new chapters on:

  • Transitioning from AOA to ACGME accreditation
  • Developing and managing an ACGME-I accredited program
  • Program coordinator wellness
  • Putting the Common Program Requirements into action
