Resident Forum

All residents participating in an ACGME-accredited residency program sponsored by the KCU-GME Consortium (GMEC) are invited and encouraged to participate in the KCU GME Resident Forum. The Resident Forum is a group for residents to communicate and exchange information regarding their educational and work environments, their programs and any other issues they may face during residency. 

The forum is an opportunity to keep residents informed about important issues that affect their careers as well as provide an organized voice to raise and resolve concerns. Any topics discussed by members of the forum that warrant further discussion are presented to the GMEC. Residents have the opportunity to conduct the forum without the DIO, faculty members, or other administrators present. 

In addition, each residency program is encouraged to have a primary clinical site resident council, forum or other platform where residents can communicate without faculty members or other administrators present.
