GME is made up of 13 individuals who provide institutional support for all accredited residency and fellowship programs, totaling more than 1,250 learners in 106 different programs
Earlier this month on Match Day, thousands of medical students across the country anxiously opened up envelopes to find out where they would continue their medical education. Among those students were more than 200 who matched with U-M, meaning they would be participating in their specialty residency training program in Ann Arbor.
But what happens to those trainees once Match Day is over? How do they eventually become vital members of the Michigan Medicine community?
They do so with the help of a small, dedicated team in the Office of Graduate Medical Education (GME). Here’s what you may not know about the group that oversees the training of future physicians at Michigan Medicine.
Helping others find success
GME is made up of 13 individuals who provide institutional support for all accredited residency and fellowship programs. That encompasses more than 400 incoming future board-certified physicians annually, totaling more than 1,250 learners in 106 different programs at any one time.
“We work to ensure all new learners are fully prepared to see patients from Day One,” said J. Sybil Biermann, M.D., the associate dean for graduate medical education and professor of orthopaedic surgery at Michigan Medicine.
