Saint Louis University’s Graduate Medical Education Committee functions as the oversight committee for the School of Medicine’s residency, subspecialty and fellowship programs.
The Graduate Medical Education Committee consists of at least 14 voting members selected from the faculty of the clinical departments.
At least one voting member from the faculty or affiliated clinical sites must be a patient safety or quality improvement officer.
The departments of internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery each has one standing member appointed to the committee for a three-year term.
At least four residents (elected by their peers) serve one-year terms.
Selected School of Medicine and affiliated teaching hospital administrators are invited to serve as ex-officio members.
Urology, plastic surgery and neurosurgery have one standing member on the committee alternating two-year terms; otolaryngology and orthopaedic surgery have one standing member on the committee alternating two-year terms; ophthalmology and dermatology have one standing member on the committee alternating two-year terms; pathology, radiology and anesthesiology have one standing member on the committee alternating two-year terms.
Newly appointed clinical departmental chairs serve on the committee during their initial year in order to become familiar with the committee's function.
