Graduate Medical Education clear dashboard
Dr. David C. Leach, director of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, praised us for being at the forefront of this movement. "The University of Rochester has become known as a medical school whose graduates have mastered the art of medicine. The deep interpretation of the competencies demonstrated by Rochester is no surprise; the school's traditions nourish them. I expect others to follow the patterns set in Rochester."
A new model for graduate medical education has emerged in the last decade, and the University of Rochester has been leading that revolution. For decades, the grueling trial of residency enabled doctors to develop from the newly graduated to the certified and from the rawness of inexperience to the steadiness of the tested. Residents endured 120-hour work weeks and learned by apprenticing with more experienced physicians. That system evolved in an era when health care was delivered by individual physicians. Today, most care is delivered by teams of professionals in complex healthcare systems. Our educational model has adapted to reflect that reality.
