GME Action Learning: Remediation and the Struggling Resident - Policy, Resources, Education


The UW GME Resident and Fellow Academic and Professional Conduct Policy and Procedure has governed resident/fellow remediation since January 2008. Residents' and fellows' dual role as learners and employees makes this a complex topic. In my role advising programs on housestaff remediation, I have identified a need to update the policy and guidance available to programs to successfully navigate these increasingly complex situations.
