To grow and diversify the physician workforce, Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC), the Butte-Glenn Medical Society (BGMS) Residency Task Force and Paradise Medical Group have launched a free webinar series — “A Primer on Designing GME in Rural Clinical Facilities”— to offer innovative technical advice and solutions to meet rural California’s critical access to care needs.
Over the course of the series, physicians, practice managers and providers can expect to learn the foundational elements to design medical residency programs, as well as how to best position your clinical facility for success as a rotational site, continuity clinic, consortium member or part of an expanded residency.
The next installment — Board-Certified Physicians: Key to Continuity Sites — will be Thursday, March 25, 2021, at 12:15 p.m.
This webinar will provide an overview on the requirement for one Board-certified physician (to be classified a Community Site), recruitment strategies to aid long-term planning and how to best prepare for the Designated Institutional Officials (DIO) section of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (AGCME).
Each one-hour virtual workshop will be presented by Kiki Nocella, Ph.D., MHA, and director at Wipfli LLP, a nationally renowned accounting and business consulting firm – unless otherwise noted. Nocella is a passionate advocate for GME and rural health care, and she has decades of experience, including a recent Psychiatry Residency Feasibility Study for Butte County and BGMS in July 2020.
