Resources for Title Series Development
In September 2017, Michigan Medicine’s (U-M) GME Program Administrator Advisory Committee embarked on the development of a new Market Title (official job title listed with Human Resources) series for the U-M GME Program Coordinators. With the collaboration of GME leadership, Human Resources, and Compensation, we were delighted to implement the GME Program Administrator Market Title series in January 2019.
As part of our research, we discovered there was little national data and documentation to support this initiative and assist with the development. Therefore, we want to share resources with other institutions to assist with their development of a Market Title series. Our hope is that these resources are useful, and a starting point for many institutions to bring the recognition deserved to this profession by implementing a Market Title specific to this position.
