Program Director Retreat 2022

May 6, 2022


The administrative requirements of running a GME program are mandated by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), which is the major governing body for Graduate Medical Education. Having adequate understanding of regulatory requirements is critical to maintaining accreditation and optimizing training programs. Programs that are non-ACGME accredited are also affected, as the institutions are ACGME-accredited; as such, this influences the entire learning environment. Utilizing annual faculty suggestions, we have created the subject matter for discussion during this 1/2-day workshop for leaders of residency and fellowship training programs across Mass General Brigham institutions.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for program directors across all Mass General Brigham programs and institutions.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Classify feedback as a dynamic bidirectional conversation in faculty development initiatives
  • Recognize and address sociocultural factors that influence perceptions of credibility
  • Discuss how strategies to enhance psychological safety and a growth mindset can impact feedback seeking and acceptance
  • Assemble feedback conversations that incorporate coaching principles
  • Summarize an overview of Mass General Brigham GME programs and resources
  • Review recent changes to GME standards, both local and national
  • Discuss and receive feedback on Mass General Brigham GME goals and initiatives
  • Formulate a familiarity with the foundational theories of change management
  • Assemble a model for thinking through the critical aspects of rolling out an organizational change 
  • Apply the model to a case study, preparing you to bring this back to your team
