(SLURA) The organization was designed to give residents a voice in the decision making of the residency programs and practices that directly affect the trainee's education and life while a resident/fellow. SLURA helps guide the decisions that are made about the hospital programs, acts as an advocate for residents in any matters that need to be addressed with specific programs, departments or the hospital administration (anonymously if need be), and to increase positive publicity for our hospital residency programs. There are four (4) resident voting positions on the Graduate Medical Education Committee that are filled by representatives from SLURA.
