The GME Page
From My wiki
As discussed in the editorial that announced OpenAnesthesia.org (Nemergut, EC Anesth Analg 2009 109: 1-2), OpenAnesthesia.org provides anesthesia residents with "GME credit" and Program Directors with a tool to document core competency activities for Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-mandated learning portfolios. Residents are invited to read the Anesthesia & Analgesia "article of the month" and listen to an interview with one of the article’s authors. During the interview, the author will discuss the specifics of the article as well as general topics geared towards improving each resident’s appreciation of basic or clinical research.
After listening to the podcast and reading the article, residents can answer 5 questions in order to demonstrate their mastery of the topics discussed (similar to the Anesthesia & Analgesia Continuing Medical Education (CME) section). Like the CME section, after demonstrating proficiency, a resident will receive a printable certificate that will specify which ACGME core competencies were addressed in the article and interview. The certificates can be put in each resident’s ACGME-required learning portfolio.
