The Residency Program Coordinator’s Handbook, Sixth Edition

Brooke Moore, MBA, 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.

The Residency Program Coordinator’s Handbook, Sixth 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 graduate medical education and related terminology
  • Manage the recruitment, orientation, and credentialing processes
  • Create a work environment that supports coordinator, faculty, and resident well-being
  • Develop a stronger relationship with program directors
  • Identify the key components and structure of program accreditation
